A Special Panel Discussion

When: Sat., Aug. 19 2017

It's no secret that Cleveland and Northeast Ohio have a rich history of comics and cartoons. The most famous of these creations is certainly Superman, created by high school classmates Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel in Glenville in 1933. In celebration of the Man of Steel and his connection to Cleveland, the Cleveland Public Library has been presenting Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton — an exhibit of art, artifacts and memorabilia —on three floors of the library's main branch. Today, the library hosts a special panel discussion about illustrating super heroes with members of the Great Lakes Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. Panelists include Ed Black, Craig Boldman, Ron Hill, Polly Keener, Terri Libenson, Chip Sansom and Mark Szorady. Superman: Heroes and Illustration takes place at 1 p.m. in CPL's Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium. Following the discussion, guests are invited to attend a guided tour of the exhibit. Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton remains on view at the library through the end of the year. Admission is free. (Usmani)
