Online Comics the Focus of Museum Exhibit in NYC

By: E&P Staff

An exhibit called “Infinite Canvas: The Art of Webcomics” will open tomorrow and run through Jan. 14 at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York City.

Curator Jennifer Babcock, who draws the syndicated Webcomic “C’est La Vie,” noted that online strips are free of the space constraints and editorial censorship printed comics often face. She added that Webcomics also provide an outlet for a greater diversity of creators and audiences, which results in many niche features.

Among the many strips featured in the exhibit will be Richard Stevens’ “Diesel Sweeties,” which began as an online comic before being picked up by United Media.
