At 7:30 p.m. today in the IMU, University of Iowa faculty members Corey Creekmur, Ana Merino, and Rachel Williams will host a free lecture on comics.

The lecture, "Comics, Creativity, and Culture: International and Interdisciplinary Perspectives," will bring together international scholars and artists to talk about not only comic strips but comic books and graphic novels as well.

This will be a three-day event that will cover the creative aspects that go into making and publishing comics. The scholars will also analyze the cultural functions that comics have on their readers from different areas around the world.

There will be three major presentations by legendary artists who will come to talk about comics as well.
