Comics in the Time of Covid is an Our Comics, Ourselves curation
of 29 self-published and small press comics and ephemera, created largely
during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. These pieces document
times felt communally on a global scale, yet at the same time deeply
personal and individual.

Subject matter overwhelmingly revolves around personal experiences
of Covid-19 and lockdowns, sharing stories of sadness, humor, confusion
and the moments lived by artists, discussing how they made it
through an unprecedented time. Some pieces use a framing of locality,
parenthood, feminism, labor, and historical contextualization.

This curation comes inside a hand-stenciled archival box.
