Mahan Gallery is pleased to present ‘This is a Comic Book’, an exhibition surveying new perspectives in comics and
the varying implications of displaying them in a gallery setting. As the title of the exhibition ironically suggests, there is
a multitude of possibilities within the medium, which are manifested in the show through the work of fourteen disparate
and at times conflicting voices in contemporary comics.

“This is a Comic Book” intends to inform the public while encouraging investigation from even the most knowledgeable
comic book reader by removing the work from its usual method of interaction and directing a microscopic lens on the works
as both illustration and creative writing.

The show will be accompanied by a small run catalog-zine featuring writing by Anne Elizabeth Moore, former editor of the
Comics Journal, Dave Filipi, Curator of Film/Video at the Wexner Center, and J. Caleb Mozzocco, former Culture Editor
for the Columbus Alive and creator of the comics blog "Every Day is like Wednesday".
