Do you love comics? Are you an artist or collector of things comic-related? We’re looking for submissions for our upcoming virtual comics exhibit! We’d love to see some of your art or an item from your collection and hear about why comics are an important part of your work, classes, hobbies, or interests.

Here’s a quick run-down of everything you need to know!

What’s the event?
Panels & Pixels: A Virtual Comics Exhibition is an upcoming Digital Scholarship and Comic Studies event presented by UNT Libraries and is open to the UNT community.

This event aims to highlight both the popularity and relevance of comics and comic art in an academic setting, as well as envisioning the university and its campus as a creative space for artists, writers, and readers of comics. We also want to show how digital tools and technologies can be used to create communities of shared interest and study both inside and outside of the university 

When is the event?
We’re offering two ways to participate!
First is the live Zoom event on Tuesday, November 9 from 11 AM – 2 PM. The second is a virtual exhibit component that will be available beginning the same day.
