Come spend the afternoon with us, looking at comix from the Real Cost of Prisons Project with RCPP founding director Lois Ahrens and comics artist Kevin Pyle, artist and co-writer of Prison Town-Paying the Price.
Lois will talk about the three Real Cost of Prisons Project comic books and how 135,000 came to be printed and sent to incarcerated women and men in every state in the country. She’ll also show slides of incarcerated cartoonists who responded to the comic books with their own work from inside. Kevin will read from Prison Town- Paying the Price and discuss the process of creating the comic, as well as his longtime involvement with WW3 and other activist comic projects.

This presentation is part of the programming for Our Comics, Ourselves: Identity, Expression, and Representation in Comic Art. Comics by The Real Cost of Prisons Project can be seen on exhibit at Interference Archive from January 21-April 17, 2016.
