Morning Edition: (Really) Old Comic Books On Display

Oct 21, 2011

Maybe you read comic books as a kid - maybe you still do, or you have children that escape into the graphic narratives that have become part of our popular culture. A new exhibit at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University explores the earliest roots of the modern day comic book. Joining us by phone this morning is the curator of Comic Inventions - The Pre-history of the Graphic Narrative in the 19th Century, Tim Young.
