And starting soon, they’ll have a new weapon at their disposal*: Neill Cameron.
This April, when the museum reopens, Cameron will be installed as their artist in residence. He’ll be working on several comics-based installations, in fact, which I believe will be there to greet people once the doors open.
A writer/artist best known for his love of robots and work on comics like The Pirates of Pangaea for The Phoenix, Cameron has built a reputation as an all-ages creator whose comics aren’t held back by conventions like “needing to chop off arms every second issue” or any of that rubbish stuff. Instead: dinosaurs! Time travel! Robots! All the important stuff, with none of the anguish that all the other comics seem so focused on.
His residency will kick off in April, and more details will come about his projects shortly, I imagine. For the time being, keep a watchful eye on his website.
*”At their disposal” makes it sound like they have power over Neill’s life and/or death, which I am faintly sure is not the case.
