Melanshek Family

MSU Comic Forum friends and family: it is with a heavy heart we share the news of the passing of Michigan comic artist Nick Melanshek, and his six-year-old daughter Riley. Nick appeared in Artist Alley at the 2019 MSU Comics Forum, which was his first time doing so. Nick and Riley sadly lost their lives as the result of a car accident. Being a smaller, creator focused show means Comics Forum attendees and staff get to spend more time with artists, and we felt we needed to share this information. Nick is survived by his wife, Jessica, and there is a Go Fund Me page set up for her if anyone would like to contribute.   https://www.gofundme.com/f/m59-family-loss-riley-and-nick

2021 MSU Comics Forum Moves Online

In light of the global pandemic and resulting health and financial strain on many of our scholars, artists, and attendees, the 2021 MSU Comics Forum will be conducted online.  We are still accepting submissions from artists and scholars for our 2021 online event.  Scholarly panel discussions will be held via invited Zoom rooms, Artist Alley will take place in a virtual setting on our website, and our special guests will deliver their keynote addresses at their regularly scheduled times.  More information forthcoming as the event draws closer.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our staff via the contact page.

Stay safe,
Ryan Claytor
MSU Comics Forum – Director
