HIGHLIGHTS:

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery   Jack Kamen‘s classic stories in comics like Tales From the Crypt, Weird Science, Haunt of Fear, and Weird Fantasy left a lasting impression on mid-century American youth. They sold in the millions, but were vilified by preachers and politicians, who claimed these comic books were the cause of juvenile delinquency and crime, leading to their ultimate demise. Kamen’s legacy has been preserved in the EC Artists’ Library from Fantagraphics Books. An exhibition of Kamen’s comics hosted by series editor J. Michael Catron opens Saturday, February 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.

Danielson’s newest body of work on paper and panel continues her exploration of maplike forms and treatise on memory and mark-making.
