CXC Weekend, October 1 – 4, 2020

The 2020 Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, like other events and gatherings this year, is online. The CXC is “an international showcase for the best of cartoon art in all its forms, including comics, animation, editorial cartoons, newspaper strips, and beyond.” And this year’s roster of guests explores all those areas of cartooning.

With Special Guest Appearances.

Since we can’t all gather in-person at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, we’re bringing the fun to you! We’ve gathered some of the most exciting voices in comics to tell you about their favorite treasures in the vault. Billy Ireland curators Jenny Robb and Caitlin McGurk will be joined by
Gene Luen Yang
Laura Park
Art Spiegelman
Garry Trudeau
Mo Willems
Raina Telgemeier
Barbara Brandon-Croft
Hilary Price
Bill Watterson


The festive weekend starts the morning of October 1 and runs to Saturday.

Fun and Games!

The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum challenges you to a three-round game of comics trivia! We’ll start out with some Comics 101 questions, but prepare yourself for some deep cuts by Round 3! Form a team of up to 5 friends in advance, or let us pair you with a group day-of.

Registration closes at midnight on Thursday, October 1.
