Remembering the underground comix great – a pioneer in autobiographical comics and minicomics, and a private, dedicated artist.
Author Brian Doherty’s forthcoming narrative history of underground comix, “Dirty Pictures”, is a big one – so big, an entire chapter had to be deleted for space. Today, we present to you that lost chapter as a standalone reflection on the generation gap (or lack thereof) between the underground cartoonists and their older, straighter inspirations.
Artist and educator Anya Davidson visits a new exhibition of Chicago cartoonists at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, spanning over half a century of history. Features dozens of pictures, an interview with co-curator Dan Nadel, and a visit to an alternative exhibition at the DIY space Gridsport.
