UConn to feature exhibit of Connecticut cartoonists

I’d love to attend this:

From Batman and Beetle Bailey to Archie and Wonder Woman, the comic book world is rich with a colorful cast of superheroes, villains and other cult creatures. And as a new action-packed, joke-filled exhibition at the UConn Stamford Art Gallery reveals, many of Connecticut’s own artists brought them to life.

“Faster Than a Speeding Bullet … an Exploration of Funnies, Superheroes and Comic Book Art by Regional Artists” features more than 130 pieces — gag and syndicated comics, graphic novels and paintings — by 14 artists from New England, New Jersey and New York. More than half the artists reside in Connecticut, a reflection of the important role the Nutmeg State plays in the world of comic art.

Thanks for posting this Alan! I live in CT and had no idea this was happening and I love seeing my home state represented so well.
