"The Hole" Authors Jennings and Duffy's recent activity:

John Jennings and Damian Duffy, authors of The Hole: Consumer Culture Vol. 1, have been keeping busy with speaking engagements around the country.

The Hole is going to be used in courses at both Forest Park Community College in St. Louis, MO and Haverford College in Haverford, PA. Jennings and Duffy recently did a talk at Forest Park and are invited to Haverford in the Fall for a comics symposium which will feature a book party for The Hole! The two have also been asked to submit a comic entry into an anthology of autobiographical comics from Univeristy of Wisconsin.

And... The Hole is up for two GLYPH awards. Wish our authors luck!
