The Durham Comics Project


The Durham Comics Project is a collection of short, autobiographical comics from Durham, NC, published by the Durham County Library with sales benefitting the Friends of the Durham Library. Comics critic Rob Clough of The Comics Journal says, “The stories submitted for the Durham Comics Project range between whimsical observations about daily life, personal demons that make every day a struggle, a child’s delight or disappointment in learning something new about the world, and an adult realizing that the world they live in is bigger than they think. Encouraging non-artists to express themselves on paper as well as publishing seasoned cartoonists, the Durham Comics Project is a fascinating mix of styles and visual approaches. In each case, the joy of self-expression and the opportunity to relate personal stories is evident in both the scrawled cartoons of young children and the fine lines of experienced artists.” Plus, stop by for a spin on the one-and-only Comics Contraption!
