AIGA_RadAmericaKomiksComics In Wisconsin author, Paul Buhle writes, “Who could have predicted it?  Underground comix got a start right here in Madison, along with San Francisco and Berkeley. And in the intervening years, the Madison area became something of a fertile comics capital. Within a decade, alternative comics of the most remarkable and daring kinds blossomed in nearby Princeton, Wis. And today, when comics dominate the blockbuster programming of Hollywood, several stars of 21st-century art comics trace their origins to these parts.”   Read the entire article from the Isthmus here.

Buhle visits Kenosha, WI on Tuesday, December 1st at 7 PM at Southwest Library, 7979 38th Avenue.    Free admission.
