Sunday Comix is a group of artists and writers, meeting monthly to share their sequential art works-in-progress and to offer critiques.  It’s also a Website.  It’s a monthly cartoon, created by members of the Sunday Comix group, that’s published in the Short North Gazette.

Sunday Comix is hosted by Sequentially Speaking, an ongoing and evolving not-for-profit organization that seeks to encourage dialog about sequential art in the community through hosting gallery shows, public creative events and workshops for the artists, writers and readers of this unique literary medium.

Ohio is also host to the Gem City Comic-Con (Dayton, OH, April 11, 2010) and the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (Columbus, OH, April 24-25, 2010).

Ohio State University is home to the Cartoon Library and Museum.  Its mission is to develop a comprehensive research collection documenting American printed cartoon art, to organize the materials, and to provide access to these resources.   The collection includes editorial cartoons, comic strips, comic books, graphic novels, sports cartoons, and magazine cartoons.

PrintThere’s also Wild Goose Creative (whose name should be near and dear to those associated with Mother Goosed) which exists to support, encourage, and promote all forms of art and artists in Columbus, Ohio. Wild Goose Creative focuses on four main tenets: hospitality, community, education, and creativity. It gives artists a forum to develop and showcase their art.
