Thought to be the first underground comic book, The Adventures of Jesus was published in 1962. Its author, Foolbert Sturgeon (real name: Frank Stack), later became an art professor at the University of Missouri and collaborated with Harvey Pekar on American Splendor and Our Cancer Year. The Charlotte Street Foundation's Urban Culture Project opens the art exhibit Good Thing I Used a Pseudonym: Frank Stack as Painter, Connoisseur, and Incognito as Graphic Novelist "Foolbert Sturgeon," from 6 to 9 tonight. It's curated by MU faculty members Anne Thompson and Nathan Boyer, who hope to explore the politics of taste and Stack's artistic personae through the collection of his original comic drawings; graphic novels about Caravaggio, van Gogh and Gauguin; and some of his nude drawings (which he produced as a parallel to his satirical work). The show runs through March 3 at the Project Space (21 East 12th Street, 816-221-5115). On Saturday, Stack, Thompson and Boyer speak at 2:30 p.m. at Project Space.
