What are the great comics? What are the comics everyone should read? An all-star line-up of scholars and thinkers sit down under the CXC banner for a two-day summit on the making of canon. Who gets to decide the comics canon? Who gets left out? What are the implications of canon building for academia, for artists, for the art form? Special first-day guests are Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Journal's infamous Top 100 Comics Of The 20th Century and Dean Mullaney of The Library Of American Comics. Presented by a partnership between Ohio State University and Columbus College Of Art & Design. Jean and Charles Schulz Lecture Hall The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum.
