One of the most eclectic talents in comics, Ohio State alumnus Paul Pope works in such diverse genres and styles as superheros, erotica, and manga.

He’ll offer insightful comments about his own practice and an overview of his remarkable career, which includes the sci-fi book THB, Heavy Liquid, and Batman: Year 100. The collection Pulphope: The Art of Paul Pope was 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 in collaboration with Ohio State’s Cartoon Research Library.
