Comics, in the raw: The Chicago Sun-Times still loves "Raw, Boiled and Cooked: Comics on the Verge," which runs through Oct. 3 at the Chicago Cultural Center:

"The basic premise of the show, inspired by Art Spiegelman's 1980s underground comic book Raw, is that comics are an art form that until the 1960s was confined to a limiting repertoire of subjects and styles. Liberated by the iconoclastic mood of the era, artists began to use the medium to tell other stories, and what had been a frivolous entertainment for children became an adult art form."
