Kentucky art museum oversees launch of UK theater writer's comic inspired by Covid19 experience

The Lane Report told of a comic written by a UK native that draws on his experiences with the Covid19 crisis of the past 2 years, now the subject of a discussion at a Kentucky museum:
The University of Kentucky Art Museum will host the launch of “Nitelite,” a new comic book written by UK Department of Theatre and Dance alumnus and former museum gallery attendant Treyton Blackburn, 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. The launch event is free and open to the public and will include a conversation with the author led by Art Museum Director Stuart Horodner.

“’Nitelite,’ in many ways, is my COVID creation,” Blackburn said. “A lot of the narrative and thematic elements of the story are drawn from my own life experiences during the quarantine. I was working as a ranger at the Breaks Interstate Park and caring for my late grandmother simultaneously. You’ll find in the first issue that these ideas directly informed Herbie’s given circumstances. On a deeper level, as a performing artist who watched every theatre venue in the world shut down as soon as I got my degree, the aimlessness that infects all the characters in ‘Nitelite’ was something that had infected me at the time as well.”
I hope this comic does turn out to be significant.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
