Last month, the Sun Bros installed an exhibit at the Harold Washington Library in downtown Chicago, in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! The exhibit chronicles the work of Wesley and Brad, starting with the formation of Sun Bros Studios and the creation of their first graphic novel, Chinatown (2012), and moving forward to their most recent projects – Killer Queen and Then It Was Dark!
Also on display is original artwork, rough drafts of scripts, special Kickstarter-only backer rewards, and more. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the evolution and work of Sun Bros Studios – what we’ve done and what we’re doing next! Want to check it out for yourself? No problem. The exhibit will remain on display on the third floor of the library until the beginning of July, so stop by and see it while you can!
So what happens after July? Later in the month, Wesley will be traveling to Lockport, IL to visit yet another library – this time for the first ever Comicopolis comic con at the White Oak Library district! Admission is 100% FREE and will feature a host of comic book authors, artists, and creators, along with engaging workshops, facepainting for the kids, a cosplay contest, and even a nifty photo booth!
Public libraries throughout the Chicagaoland area are really starting to embrace comics, and we’re proud to be participating in their events all summer long. Show them your support and help promote comics readership by checking out these free events throughout Illinois. We’ll be adding more library comic cons and other events to the Con Schedule as we confirm the dates, so check back often for updates. Enjoy a comic-filled summer in the city – and we’ll see you next month at Comicopolis!
