Charles Williams Activity
Currently on view at Atlanta Contemporary is The Life and Death of Charles Williams. Charles Williams created artwork in many mediums - sculptures, drawings, paintings, and more. For our first virtual activity, we are looking at William's comics.
Williams created his first original comic, J.C. of the Job Corps, as a teenager to include in the newspaper of the Breckinridge Job Corps Center in which he enrolled to learn practical job skills after he dropped out of college. Williams ultimately created an entire roster of characters including J.C. of the Job Corps, Captain Galaxy, Captain Soul, Black Son, and Captain Thirteen, among others.
