Lynda Barry @
Wisconsin Book Festival

When you think of comic books do you have visions of funny animals and heroes in tights? And do you think of comics as juvenile, not really worth your time? Well, think again and take "A Serious Look at Comics" under the direction of Lynda Barry and featuring Paul Buhle (Comics in Wisconsin) and James Danky (Underground Classics: The Transformation of Comics into Comix). Comics have grown-up and so has our appreciation for graphic work that marries text and image. Today’s fans and scholars look at comics as a key element in our understanding of culture, even our lives.
