‘Sunday Funnies’ stamp dedication set for Wednesday
The US Postal Service will hold a First-Day-of-Issue dedication ceremony of the Sunday Funnies at The Ohio State University Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in Columbus OH. On hand for the occasion will be museum curator and professor Lucy Shelton Caswell, OSU President E. Gordon Gee, Beetle Bailey creator Mort Walker, Garfield creator Jim Davis, Dennis the Menace artists Marcus Hamilton and Ron Ferdinand, Archie Comics newspaper strip writer Craig Boldman and Calvin and Hobbes Editor Lee Salem.
The event is free to the public and begins at 10:30 a.m. this Wednesday at The Ohio State University Performance Hall at the Ohio Union, 1739 High Street Columbus, OH.
Correction: The event will be held tomorrow, the 16th, not Friday as I earlier reported. I’ve adjusted the dates above for clarity.
