Some cool news from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at OSU: they are establishing a collection of small press and self published comix. The collection is being named after Dylan Williams, the publisher of Sparkplug Comics, as well as a cartoonist himself, who passed away last September.
The purpose of the Dylan Williams Collection at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum is to strengthen and modernize our representation of the contemporary small press comics community. Although our collection currently features a diverse selection of historical self-published works, the Dylan Williams Collection will continually target and support emerging artists in the alternative comics field. We are proud to honor small press publisher, comics historian and cartoonist Dylan Williams with the namesake of this collection.
The library is accepting gifts-in-kind, so if you’re an indie cartoonist, please consider donating some of your self published comix to the library. For more information please contact Caitlin McGurk, firstname.lastname@example.org – 614-292-0538.
