Our regular series, “Comics Culture,” dives into the world of comics and the culture around them. Joel Christian Gill, inaugural chair of the Boston University MFA program in Visual Narrative and our guide in exploring this world, joins us to discuss his upcoming exhibition, “Comics Is A Medium, Not A Genre.“
Listen to the interview with Gill and Lissa Cramer, director of BU Art Galleries, to learn about how the exhibition came to be and hear about the significant works on view, including Charles Schulz’s first-ever Peanuts comic strip on loan from the Library of Congress!
