THIS EXHIBITION HAS BEEN CANCELED.
From the Rare Book Collection and the Comic Art Collection in the Division of Special Collections, Archives, and Rare Books at the University of Missouri Libraries.
Comic books did not take off until the introduction of Superman in the late 1930s, while in the Middle Ages, early book printers used carved wood blocks as stamps to illustrate their texts. The exhibition presents the tradition of word- and image-making through woodcuts, engravings, comic strips, and graphic novels. (Free; open to the public during COCA hours.)
