He’ll offer insightful comments about his own practice and an overview of his remarkable career, which includes the sci-fi book THBHeavy Liquid, and Batman: Year 100. The collection Pulphope: The Art of Paul Popewas published in 2007.

The exhibition Jeff Smith: Bone and Beyond, on view through August 3, features original comic book drawings by Jeff Smith, the Columbus-based artist who created the epic comic book serial Bone, and some of the comics artists who have inspired him.  The exhibition and related events are presented by the Wexner Center for the Arts and the Cartoon Research Library.
