Here’s Something We Can All Do Together Four Weeks From Now: Focus On The Nib At CXC


It's our great honor at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC) to host four weeks from now a Saturday night event put together by students and faculty of Columbus College Of Art & Design (CCAD) calling attention to the financial situation facing The Nib. I feel The Nib is an important publication, impeccably assembled, and I'd like to see it continue to publish for as long as it can.

CCAD is helping us call attention to its achievements and its continuing promise by bringing to its stage Nib founder Matt Bors, editors Eleri Harris and Matt Lubchansky, and cartoonists like Whit Taylor and Rob Rogers who have published work there. For a special treat, CCAD is bringing in the legendary Tom Tomorrow for an appearance. He will be interviewed on stage.

This event will be free because all of our events are free, plus we hope you might spend some of that money on a subscription for the publication. Rampant over-capitalism and the demand that the value of a return on an investment in art and journalism need start at seven figures, these are not sustainable ideas, let alone optimal ones. Let's do what we can on behalf of this publication and its displayed excellence. I hope to see many of you on the 28th.
