Dark Horse Art Works of Alton is presenting what its owner believes is a first of its kind exhibit.  Starting Friday and running through January 17, a Comic Book Art Exhibition will grace the East Gallery at Jacoby Arts Center on Broadway.  The exhibition features artwork that is dedicated to and inspired by comic books.

Dark Horse owner Eric Stauffer says he would like to see this show grow in the years to come.
