John Kelly Named New Executive Director At The ToonSeum
Congratulations to John Kelly, the once-upon-a-time TCJ writer and general comics historian who used to work for the NBA, new executive director at the ToonSeum. Kelly is fully conversant with comics history and the artistic end of comics' development, which along with his business background makes him a sublimely qualified candidate.
The Toonseum was founded and run for what seems like forever by Joe Wos. He left the executive director position in 2014. Tammy Aupperle has more recently served as interim director.
Kelly has been involved with the local cartooning community since his move to Pittsburgh from New York, including I believe some involvement with Pittsburgh Indie Expo (PIX). Our congratulations and all support to him as he settles in with this new challenge.
