OH – An Evening with Joyce Farmer

Press Release:

Join the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum on Tuesday, April 17th at 6:00pm for an evening with renowned cartoonist Joyce Farmer.

Farmer has been creating comics since 1972. The series Tits and Clits (1972-1987) explored women’s adventures regarding sex and cultural expectations. Abortion Eve, edited by Joyce Farmer and Lyn Chevli, was published shortly after the Supreme Court’s January 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling and informed women about the realities of abortion. Controversial at the time, Farmer is now recognized as a pioneer in underground comix.

Her graphic memoir Special Exits (2010) depicts the universal problems of the elderly and treatment of the extremely vulnerable by the medical community. She won a Reuben award and was nominated for an Eisner the same year. The book has been translated into five languages.

Farmer will be in conversation with comics journalist and CXC Executive Director, Thomas Spurgeon.

This event is co-sponsored by Cartoon Crossroads Columbus – CXC.

OH – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at House of Blues Cleveland on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.
