Crockett Johnson's Barnaby: What Makes a Great Comic Strip

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Before Calvin and Hobbes, Peanuts, and Pogo, there was Barnaby. Crockett Johnson's classic strip combined fantasy and satire, a child's feeling of wonder and an adult's wariness, with highly literate jokes and a keen eye for the ridiculous. Johnson's biographer Philip Nel is joined by Eric Reynolds, co-editor of Fantagraphics's Barnaby series, cartoonist Jeff Smith (Bone), and moderator Thomas Spurgeon (The Comics Reporter). They'll talk about why the strip remains so influential and its place in the history of great American comics.
