MENTORS AND MONSTERS | Saturdays through Oct 16
Stephen R. Bissette left his mark on comics, drawing swamp things, dinosaurs, and other terrifying creatures. Mentors and Monsters: Selections from the Stephen R. Bissette Collection, the latest exhibition at The Center for Cartoon Studies, features the comics that left their mark on Bissette.

With artwork from Bissette’s formative influences and contemporaries, this show features some of the 20th century’s greatest comic book artists including Jack Davis, Jack Kirby, Joe Kubert, Harvey Kurtzman, and Alex Toth. With additional work by Sam Glanzman, Al Williamson, Bernie Wrightson, John Byrne, and more, Mentors and Monsters sheds light on the artistic lineage and professional accomplishments of one of CCS’s most beloved and accomplished faculty members.
