Among the many things to do at the Huntsville Comic Convention, our event’s “dealer’s room” will be distributed throughout the Mill facility, giving everyone an opportunity to explore the Mill’s 148 working studios and 200 plus artists and makers alongside exciting new comics, gaming, and pop culture merchandise vendors.
Our media guests, such as actress Melissa “Hannah the Bicycle Girl Zombie” Cowan and comic book artists from Marvel and DC, will be available to sign autographs and answer questions from fans.
The entire facility will be open during the convention, and events and panels will be spread throughout the entire Mill, giving attendees the opportunity to explore this historic space for interesting finds and photo opportunities.

IL – Krazy Signing

000 cxrev Michael Tisserand

Press Release:

Comix Revolution Evanston and Northwestern professor Bill Savage host New Orleans-based writer Michael Tisserand on Friday, February 3rd at 5:30 PM for a presentation of his new book, Krazy: George Herriman, a Life in Black and White — the first full-length biography of cartoonist George Herriman, the creator of Krazy Kat.

Michael’s work has appeared in the Oxford American, The Nation, The Progressive, and on WBEZ-FM Chicago.

The creator of the greatest comic strip in history finally gets his due—in an eye-opening biography that lays bare the truth about his art, his heritage, and his life on America’s color line. A native of nineteenth-century New Orleans, George Herriman came of age as an illustrator, journalist, and cartoonist in the boomtown of Los Angeles and the wild metropolis of New York. Appearing in the biggest newspapers of the early twentieth century—including those owned by William Randolph Hearst—Herriman’s Krazy Kat cartoons quickly propelled him to fame. Although fitfully popular with readers of the period, his work has been widely credited with elevating cartoons from daily amusements to anarchic art.

Herriman used his work to explore the human condition, creating a modernist fantasia that was inspired by the landscapes he discovered in his travels—from chaotic urban life to the Beckett-like desert vistas of the Southwest. Yet underlying his own life—and often emerging from the contours of his very public art—was a very private secret: known as “the Greek” for his swarthy complexion and curly hair, Herriman was actually African American, born to a prominent Creole family that hid its racial identity in the dangerous days of Reconstruction.

Drawing on exhaustive original research into Herriman’s family history, interviews with surviving friends and family, and deep analysis of the artist’s work and surviving written records, Michael Tisserand brings this little-understood figure to vivid life, paying homage to a visionary artist who helped shape modern culture.
