Welcome to the 5th Annual Comics Issue 


Five years ago we sat down with John G. at a coffee shop and talked about what should have been an obvious idea long before it became one: creating an issue devoted to and produced by local comic artists. Each December since then, John has gathered some of the best and brightest comic artists from around Northeast Ohio to produce the first issue of the upcoming year — a celebration of the region’s vast talent, a chance to commission work usually not found in these pages, an opportunity to again demonstrate that comics are a medium capable of showing and telling at the same time. For those reasons and others, it has become an annual favorite for us and many of you.

This year the artists — Kevin Fagan, Angela Oster, Sequoia Bostick, Amalia DeGirolamo and John — created works of nonfiction, each of their own choosing. Do enjoy them.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
