No Library Card Needed for the #LibraryofAwesome Event

19 Mar 2018 - By TW Staff

Get ready, Action Comics fans: the Library of Congress will celebrate the 1000th issue of the seminal DC comic book series (and commemorate 80 years of Superman) with a live interview featuring DC legends on Thursday, March 29.

Former publisher and president of DC, Paul Levitz, will join famed DC writer and artist Dan Jurgens—known for his work on the Superman series and the pop culture phenomenon The Death of Superman—for a conversation about the history of superhero comics, the writers and artists who create them and the legacy of DC’s iconic Superman character. The event coincides with Awesome Con, which will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center beginning March 30.

The discussion will be moderated by Michael Cavna of The Washington Post's Eisner-nominated “Comic Riffs” column. A question-and-answer session and book signing will follow.

If you can't get to Washington for the event, don't worry: The Library of Congress will stream it live on the its YouTube channel and you can follow along on Twitter at @librarycongress and #LibraryofAwesome.

Don't miss it!
