  • Third Mind Comics Presents: Superspreader Third Mind Comics Presents: Superspreader October 1, 2021

    Self-publishing powerhouse Steyven Curry and his mastermind collaborator Taylor Chiu, also known as Third Mind Comics, have recently pulled off the ultimate Columbus art heist, drawing together creators from all artistic disciplines to publish the newest art mag in town: Superspreader. Featuring comics, poetry, fine art, short fiction and non-fiction from some of Columbus’s very finest writers and artists, Superspreader is infectiously pushing the boundaries of collaboration and small press self-publishing right here in the city. This panel will find Curry and Chiu detailing how they created Superspreader and excavating their multitude of other self-publishing ventures.

    This event will be held in person at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum.

  • CXC Cartoon Crossroads Columbus 2021 CXC Cartoon Crossroads Columbus 2021 September 30, 2021 - October 3, 2021

    We hope to provide an international showcase for the best of cartoon art in all its forms, including comics, animation, editorial cartoons, newspaper strips, and beyond, in a city that is a growing center of importance to comics and cartooning. We also focus on helping the next generation of young cartooning talent develop thriving careers that invigorate the industry for years to come.

    To do that, we strive to create an atmosphere of communication and shared enthusiasm between creators and audiences of cartoon storytelling so they can have serious (and fun) discussions on it as art, with the respect their creators deserve, as well as help an emerging generation of young cartooning talent develop careers that are both artistically and economically rewarding.

    This year’s events will be held both virtually and in-person. schedule of events
