Night Music (Wayne Alan Harold, 2008) provides an illuminating behind-the-scenes look at one of the most acclaimed and interesting comic book artists working today, P. Craig Russell.

Before the film, stop in the Wexner Center Store where Russell will be signing copies ofhis work, including his graphic novel adaptation of Coraline, at 6 pm.

Born in Wellsville, Ohio, and now living in Kent, Ohio, Russell quickly established himself as one of the most distinctive artists in the fantasy genre with early work onDoctor Strange for Marvel Comics in the mid 1970s. He has since created mesmerizing interpretations of characters ranging from Conan to Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, along with a string of astonishing adaptations of operas (The Magic Flute and Salome among them) and of Gaiman’s children’s classic Coraline.
