News Around the Kingdom: “King of Comics” Exhibit Opening

By ComicsKingdom Admin

Greetings Comics Kingdom Royals,

This week, New York enjoyed a Royal Visit this week with the arrival of Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. But, every day is a visit from royalty for us when we entertain our Comics Kingdom fans, who are in a class all their own.

This weekend, many cartoonists, along with several King Features’ executives, will head to the Ohio Valley for the opening of a very exciting exhibit, “King of the Comics: William Randolph Hearst and 100 Years of King Features,” at Ohio State University’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. It’s a wonderful tribute to comics, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

Jeff Parker (DUSTIN) published a detailed post about the exhibit and weekend event, which is free and open to the public. More details and photos to come in next week’s recap.
