Friday Night in the Bronx

Eddie and I have never regretted leaving New York City (as fond as we were of the city, which was pretty fond) and settling in northwestern Massachusetts. We love walking out onto our front porch and being greeted by a snow-capped mountain ridges.

However

…if I were going to be in the Big Apple this Friday night, you can bet I would subway up to the Bliss Hall Art Gallery at Bronx Community College (181st Street & University Avenue) at 5 PM to attend the opening reception for The Color of Comics, an exhibit put together by Eugene Adams and my comics colleague Alex Simmons showing the diverse ways that African American and other characters of color have been and are being portrayed in the comics medium.

Unfortunately, there’s no way I can make the drive down to be part of the fun, but at least I’ll be represented at the show by Anna Dellyne Pepper and her son Les from Stuck Rubber Baby. Who knows? This might be the night that Anna Dellyne breaks her pledge never to sing in public again, and I have no doubt that Les will be hitting the bars in Greenwich Village later in the evening.

One Response to Friday Night in the Bronx

  1. Hello there, Howard. Sorry for being away from your site for so long. I’m quite a bit busy. Is 2008 being kind to you, or mean? Remember that my offer to be your and your husband guide in Madrid is still valid. 🙂
