…meanwhile, in the least mysterious city on the planet (apparently Chicago), Duncan and Ryan panel with the overmodest Artist/Cartoonist Chris Ware and Chicago’s cultural historian emeritus Tim Samuelson about the storied origins of the Chicago comic scene. In this harrowing episode our protagonists discuss a triumvirate of collaborative projects: the Chicago Cultural Center’s, “Chicago: Where Comics Came to Life 1880-1960”, the forthcoming exhibit at Wrightwood 659

“Romanticism to Ruin: Two Lost Works of Sullivan and Wright”, and an eponymous interminable exhibition of Samuelson’s personal historical ephemera curated by Ware at the Chicago Cultural Center.
