In 2013, KOYAMA PRESS publisher Annie Koyama began amassing original art to donate to the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum that would represent a snapshot of the contemporary alternative comics industry. This exhibit of the Koyama Collection offers an introduction to a diverse network of cartoonists, small-press publishers, and collectives operating today. Artists highlighted include Lisa Hanawalt, Michael DeForge, Julia Wertz, Gabrielle Bell, Noah Van Sciver, and more.
