Piran Erwin checked over reference materials while creating his very own “Bionicle” comic Saturday morning at the Fort Frances Museum. The workshop was held in conjunction with the new exhibit, “Comic Books: A History,” which runs there until Nov. 17. The public is welcome to drop by and read materials on loan for the exhibit.
