Richard Thompson

Tuesday, November 1 at 7 p.m.

Lecture

“Calvin and Hobbes” creator Bill Watterson has said about Richard Thompson’s “Cul de Sac”: “The strip has a unique and honest voice, a seemingly intuitive feel for what comics do best ... a very funny intelligence.”  Thompson, who also draws The Washington Post’s “Richard’s Poor Almanac,” discusses the world of comic strips and highlights some of his favorites. This event is presented in collaboration with McDaniel College and the exhibition Kings of the Pages: Comic Strips and Culture 1895-1950, on view at McDaniel through November 19.
