· Kate Slater, who is the Library Services Assistant in the Art & Music Department at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, has kindly forwarded the following press release for the upcoming Comic Revolutions exhibition, which will include a panel with David Mack as one of the guests:

    An exhibition in the Art & Music Department, "Comic Revolutions: Underground Comix, Graphic Novels & Manga," will showcase three important phases in the history of comic books. The exhibition, which runs from August 1 through October 30, also will feature the work of distinguished local practitioners. The tri-state area is home to many prominent comic/graphic novel writers and artists, from pioneers of the underground comix movement, such as Justin Green, to a current manga star, David Mack.

    · Justin Green is one of the most important artists of the underground movement, recognized as the pioneer of the autobiographical comic with Binky Brown Meets the Holy Virgin Mary. A collection of his Binky stories was published by Last Gasp in 1995 as Justin Green’s Binky Brown Sampler. Two of Green’s strips for magazines have also been collected and published: Musical Legends: The Collected Comics from Pulse Magazine (Last Gasp, 2004) and Justin Green's Sign Game: A Collection of Monthly Comic Strips from Signs of the Time (ST Publications, 1995).

    · Carol Tyler is an award-winning cartoon artist and storyteller whom Robert Crumb calls "a great artist." A member of the underground comix generation, Tyler has taught classes on drawing comics to school-age children, college students and adults for more than 20 years. Her second solo effort, Late Bloomer, published by Fantagraphics, will be available in August 2005.

    · Bruce Chrislip is a comic book artist/writer/editor/publisher/historian. His cartoons and comics have been published by Aardvark/Vanaheim, Eclipse, Fantagraphics, Kitchen Sink Press, the Arizona Republic, the San Francisco Chronicle and the National Enquirer, among others. Chrislip has also been the cartoonist for more than 400 minicomix.

    · Craig Boldman has been a professional cartoonist since 1978. He currently writes the Jughead comic book for Archie Comics Publications, and has been writing the Archie newspaper strip since 1992. In 1985, Boldman wrote the adventures of Superman for DC Comics and has since written a variety of other well-known characters, including "Big Boy," "Bazooka Joe," and strips based on two Disney TV shows: "Disney's Doug," and "Disney's Recess."

    · David Mack is the creator, author and artist of Kabuki, which is published by Image Comics, and the writer and cover artist for Marvel Comics' Daredevil, one of the ten best-selling comics in the United States. Kabuki has won Mack international acclaim for its innovative storytelling, painting techniques and page design. The series is available in seven languages and there are over one million copies of Kabuki comics, paperbacks and hardcovers, in print in the United States alone.
