A high-level introduction into how a closely neighboring culture views the humble comic book in a completely different way.

About the Speaker: RM Rhodes has a day job and lives in Arlington, but he would prefer to be known as a comics creator and historian. He has written articles and reviews for sites like Forces of Geek, Need Coffee, The Hooded Utilitarian, and Comics Workbook. He is learning French so he can read his French comics and enjoys talking about himself in the third person.

The Alexandria Lyceum was founded in 1838, by a group of well-educated local men with an interest in improving public educational and cultural opportunities throughout the community. In 1839, the group joined with the Alexandria Library to construct a new home for both organizations, the building known today as The Lyceum, Alexandria’s History Museum. This historic site has also served as a Civil War hospital ward, a private residence, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Nation’s first Bicentennial Visitor’s Center. Today, as the city’s history museum, the site offers exhibitions, public programs, a museum store, and facility rentals.
