Last but not least was a significant exhibit that shook the comic strip literati. "Milton Caniff: An Introduction," curated by Matt Tauber, took over the display case in the lobby of the Green Township branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. The display included tear sheets, photos and memorabilia related to Caniff and his comic strips. The Green Township library has the third highest circulation in the 41-branch system. When asked about the success of the exhibit, one librarian said, "Um, well...I do see people looking at it."
All in all, a good year for Caniffites! I'm looking forward to 2013 for Volume 3 of the Complete "Steve Canyon" TV series on DVD, two new volumes of "Steve Canyon" from the Library of American Comics, as well as the exciting expansion of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in the Fall.
