Russ Kick is the editor of an ambitious project called The Graphic Canon. This three volume series covers classics of literature rendered in an stunning range of graphic art forms.
The series begins at the dawn of literature with the Epic of Gilgamesh. The third and final edition of the Graphic Canon will cover literature of the 20th Century and will be issued next March. In this interview Russ Kick describes how he conceived of this project and then proceeded to bring it to fruition.
It's been a year of ups and downs for Flint Michigan's Calcaska. After going from a four-piece band to a trio, the members have spent time honing their sound in preparation for a busy year in 2013. Lead singer Jeff Gingrich spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about the band's plans for the future and the evolution of their sound during 2012.
Calcaska will perform on October 12 at Ghostlight Coffee in Dayton.
