If You're Not Busy Monday....

...as many of you know, I'm on the Comic Book Committee of the Chicago Nerd Social Club, We have a Comics 301 series, focusing on comics in academia.

I'm blogging to invite everyone to our next event, which will be held Monday, April 26th, at 7:00 pm at Challengers Comics, located at 1845 N. Western (just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Western Blue Line station.)

To quote the entry from the Nerd Blog:

Our guest will be Len Strazewski, professor of Journalism at Columbia College Chicago.

Strazewski has been writing professionally since he was 19 years old, working as a staff and free-lance reporter and editor for local and national newspapers and magazines, including Advertising Age, Crain’s Chicago Business, Online Access, Windows & DOS User’s Guide, The Chicago Tribune, and The Chicago Sun-Times, among others.

From 1987 to 1997, he maintained a dual identity as a comic book writer, scripting Flash, Justice Society of America, Phantom Lady, Starman, The Fly and The Web for DC Comics, Prime, Prototype and Elven for a division of Marvel Comics and Speed Racer for NOW Comics.

Strazewski has a B.S.J. from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, an M.A. in the Program for Writers at University of Illinois at Chicago and a M.S. in Industrial Relations from Loyola University in Chicago.
