I should point out, Alan, that it’s not YET an exhibition. I wanted to have a solid line-up of cartoonists agreeing to participate before I began to try to “sell” One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages to museums and colleges. Now that I have such an all-star list, I will begin, next week, contacting potential venues. Surely, such a unique and unprecedented exhibit of comics, from the oldest to the youngest, will not be a hard sell.

Also, you’ll notice that each strip listed above has only one name attached to it. Obviously, many of these strips have two or more creators; the names listed with the strips are, in most cases, just who my contact person is. No disrespect toward the co-creators of any these strips/panels is intended. (The fact is, I just copy-pasted the first two columns from my Excel document to share this update.)

John! Congratulations! It’s a fantastic list of participating cartoonists! However, I couldn’t help noticing the absence of Mike Peter’s “Mother Goose and Grimm”. I hope, eventually, you will be able to add his very funny work to the group.

Yay! Can’t wait to see which cities you visit! We need some toonage down here! NC or SC, I hope?

Meredith, near the top of my “wish list” of Southern cities is Charlotte, North Carolina.

John, look into Asheville, North Carolina if you are coming this way.

Add to the above list DADDY’S HOME by Tony Rubino & Gary Markstein, and PARDON MY PLANET by Vic Lee.

David, I’m definitely interested in showing OFS in North Carolina; Besides Charlotte, I’d love to go to Asheville (get the name of a likely venue for me!) and/or the Raleigh/Durham area, with which I’m more familiar.

Sounds utterly fantastic, John! I really respect your undertaking this project. I know some museum professionals, so I know that this sort of exhibition is incredibly resource-intensive (transportation, insurance, mounting equipment, etc.), and the logistics are daunting. These shows are always labors of love, as a result.

The last really great comics-oriented traveling exhibition I saw was Jerry Robinson’s exhibition about the Golden Age of comic books…here’s a link to Hogan’s Alley’s visit when it came to Atlanta:

Any plans for hitting Atlanta, John? If not, I’d gladly drive the three hours to Charlotte to see the exhibition!

I wish you were coming to the NE. “One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages” seems like it would be the perfect show to exhibit at MOCCA.

Rene, please call Karl Erickson and tell him that! Despite my desire to use this exhibition as a means of finding a likely home for The Cartoon Art Museum of the South, MoCCA is one of the four venues (not in the South) I would GLADLY open “One Fine Sunday!”

John, I really hope your show does make it to NY. You’ll see I sent an email to Karl. I copied u at your hotmail account. If there is anything else you can think of that I can do to help, I am happy to. :) Best of luck with the show!

John, Please check into Asheville. If you need anything let me know. I am a native of Asheville and would love to get it at Pack Place!

I just saw this show at OSU. What a great exhibit! Is the schedule available anywhere? I would love to know where else it will be appearing so I can take my family to see it.
