THE SOUND OF COMICS:
AN EVENING OF COMICS & MUSIC


From pop stars appearing in romance stories as villains (Elvis) to pop stars with their own comics (Johnny Cash), pop stars as cartoons (Gorillaz) and Elvis Presley films in comic book form, music and comix have enjoyed a long and intimate relationship. Was Marvel Comics Dazzler, for example, the prototype for Britney Spears?

Part 1: Show and Tell
