What is L.O.P.?
What is L.O.P.?
We believe in the potential of comics to serve as a vibrant medium of personal expression. We embrace the challenging side of the form and work to promote and inspire new, less established talents. Our goal is to expand awareness of the quality of work being done. We support full 1st Amendment protection for comics’ creators and publishers. R. Crumb, the father of underground comix, once responded to media accusations of pornography: “It can’t hurt you folks; it’s only lines on paper!” Hence, the name of this website.
Why was L.O.P. Formed?
The stereotype of American Culture that comics can only serve as juvenile entertainment limits the audience and the growth of the medium. L.O.P. cracks away at this belief by placing comics collections in public libraries, by sponsoring free talks by artists and other knowledgeable persons.
