Vermont Folkllife Center
Middlebury, Vermont

Non-fiction comics are a vibrant genre. Autobiographical comics have been popular for a while, but as we can see with the popularity of The Nib, journalism comics are a hit. But that is not the end of it. There are comics about science, biographies, and more. So the Vermont Folklife Center is hosting the Non-Fiction Comics Mini-Fest on April 23 in Middlebury, Vermont.

Thesis projects by Angela Boyle, Stephanie Zuppo, Kane Lynch, and Kelly Swann. Plus the infamous panel that started the comics code pencil by Stephen R. Bissette.

In conjunction with their exhibit of family cartoons by the late Stanley Lyndes, Family Traits: Art Humor, and Everyday Life , you can visit this FREE fest with an assortment of New England cartoonists. Many cohorts from The Center for Cartoon Studies will be there:

Angela Boyle (that’s me) (’16): panelist on “Cartoonists’ Perspectives on The Most Costly Journey
Bridget Comeau (’15)
