Lisa Hanawalt, “U.S.A. Road Trip Scavenger Hunt” (September 2010)
This comic was a part of the Creative Time Comics series, which featured new comics from different artists each month of 2009 and 2010. The artists included offered a range of sensibilities and experience, from established cartoonists and illustrators to artists who are better known for work in other media.

The online exhibition serves as a showcase to the wonderful diversity and gravitas of the comic form.
