I always loved comic books as a kid. This engaging new exhibit at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art goes a long way toward explaining why.

Opening for Aliens, Monsters and Madmen, exhibition of classic comic book art, at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.

The only magazine my parents ever forbade me to read as a child was Mad. (The prohibition, I’m happy to say, didn’t work.)


What would an opening be without snacks?


The museum has mounted the show with a touch of P.T Barnum.


Some of the art work in these panels looks a lot like Old Master prints.


The exhibit runs through July 10.
