Did you know the State Library collects comics by Pennsylvania authors and illustrators? Are you a fan of Spider Man? How about Dr. Strange? Did you know that they are illustrated by the same Pennsylvania born artist – Steve Ditko!?
See some rare comics and other graphica at the State Library open house and lunchtime lecture!
Professor Travis Kurowski, a Graphica expert from York College, will give a talk on the ages and development of American Comics.
This will be followed at 1:00 p.m. by a tour of the library’s rare comics on exhibit in the Rare Collections Reading Room.
Please email Ellen Shenk or call 717-783-5969 for more information.
