Windy City Times‘s Vern Hester came to my May 1 Artist’s Talk at the University of Chicago…but Vern left out his own brilliant after-the-talk suggestion that I send a copy of Pregnant Butch to Paul “Yer Havin’ My Babeh” Anka.
This is an exhibit and talk about of some of the original bristol board art from Pregnant Butch. Curated by World-Famous Comics Scholar Hillary “Outside the Box” Chute!
