Ohio is a Midwestern state in the Great Lakes region of the United States. Of the fifty states, it is the 34th largest by area, the seventh most populous, the tenth most densely populated; the state's capital and largest city is Columbus. The state takes its name from the Ohio River, whose name in turn originated from the Seneca word ohiːyo', meaning "good river", "great river" or "large creek". Partitioned from the Northwest Territory, Ohio was the 17th state admitted to the Union on March 1, 1803, the first under the Northwest Ordinance. Ohio is known as the "Buckeye State" after its Ohio buckeye trees, Ohioans are known as "Buckeyes". Ohio rose from the wilderness of Ohio Country west of Appalachia in colonial times through the Northwest Indian Wars as part of the Northwest Territory in the early frontier, to become the first non-colonial free state admitted to the union, to an industrial powerhouse in the 20th century before transmogrifying to a more information and service based economy in the 21st.
The government of Ohio is composed of the executive branch, led by the Governor. Ohio occupies 16 seats in the United States House of Representatives. Ohio is known for its status as both a bellwether in national elections. Six Presidents of the United States have been elected. Ohio is an industrial state, ranking 8th out of 50 states in GDP, is the second largest producer of automobiles behind Michigan. Ohio's geographic location has proven to be an asset for economic expansion; because Ohio links the Northeast to the Midwest, much cargo and business traffic passes through its borders along its well-developed highways. Ohio has the nation's 10th largest highway network and is within a one-day drive of 50% of North America's population and 70% of North America's manufacturing capacity. To the north, Lake Erie gives Ohio 312 miles of coastline. Ohio's southern border is defined by the Ohio River, much of the northern border is defined by Lake Erie. Ohio's neighbors are Pennsylvania to the east, Michigan to the northwest, Lake Erie to the north, Indiana to the west, Kentucky on the south, West Virginia on the southeast.
Ohio's borders were defined by metes and bounds in the Enabling Act of 1802 as follows: Bounded on the east by the Pennsylvania line, on the south by the Ohio River, to the mouth of the Great Miami River, on the west by the line drawn due north from the mouth of the Great Miami aforesaid, on the north by an east and west line drawn through the southerly extreme of Lake Michigan, running east after intersecting the due north line aforesaid, from the mouth of the Great Miami until it shall intersect Lake Erie or the territorial line, thence with the same through Lake Erie to the Pennsylvania line aforesaid. Ohio is bounded by the Ohio River, but nearly all of the river itself belongs to Kentucky and West Virginia. In 1980, the U. S. Supreme Court held that, based on the wording of the cessation of territory by Virginia, the boundary between Ohio and Kentucky is the northern low-water mark of the river as it existed in 1792. Ohio has only that portion of the river between the river's 1792 low-water mark and the present high-water mark.
The border with Michigan has changed, as a result of the Toledo War, to angle northeast to the north shore of the mouth of the Maumee River. Much of Ohio features glaciated till plains, with an exceptionally flat area in the northwest being known as the Great Black Swamp; this glaciated region in the northwest and central state is bordered to the east and southeast first by a belt known as the glaciated Allegheny Plateau, by another belt known as the unglaciated Allegheny Plateau. Most of Ohio is of low relief, but the unglaciated Allegheny Plateau features rugged hills and forests; the rugged southeastern quadrant of Ohio, stretching in an outward bow-like arc along the Ohio River from the West Virginia Panhandle to the outskirts of Cincinnati, forms a distinct socio-economic unit. Geologically similar to parts of West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania, this area's coal mining legacy, dependence on small pockets of old manufacturing establishments, distinctive regional dialect set this section off from the rest of the state.
In 1965 the United States Congress passed the Appalachian Regional Development Act, an attempt to "address the persistent poverty and growing economic despair of the Appalachian Region." This act defines 29 Ohio counties as part of Appalachia. While 1/3 of Ohio's land mass is part of the federally defined Appalachian region, only 12.8% of Ohioans live there Significant rivers within the state include the Cuyahoga River, Great Miami River, Maumee River, Muskingum River, Scioto River. The rivers in the northern part of the state drain into the northern Atlantic Ocean via Lake Erie and the St. Lawrence River, the rivers in the southern part of the state drain into the Gulf of Mexico via the Ohio River and the Mississippi; the worst weather disaster in Ohio history occurred along the Great Miami River in 1913. Known as the Great Dayton Flood, the entire Miami River watershed flooded, including the downtown business district of Dayton; as a result, the Miami Conservancy District was created as the first major flood plain engineering project in Ohio and the United States.
Grand Lake St. Marys in the west-central part of the state was constructed as a supply of water for ca
Virtual International Authority File
The Virtual International Authority File is an international authority file. It is a joint project of several national libraries and operated by the Online Computer Library Center. Discussion about having a common international authority started in the late 1990s. After a series of failed attempts to come up with a unique common authority file, the new idea was to link existing national authorities; this would present all the benefits of a common file without requiring a large investment of time and expense in the process. The project was initiated by the US Library of Congress, the German National Library and the OCLC on August 6, 2003; the Bibliothèque nationale de France joined the project on October 5, 2007. The project transitioned to being a service of the OCLC on April 4, 2012; the aim is to link the national authority files to a single virtual authority file. In this file, identical records from the different data sets are linked together. A VIAF record receives a standard data number, contains the primary "see" and "see also" records from the original records, refers to the original authority records.
The data are available for research and data exchange and sharing. Reciprocal updating uses the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting protocol; the file numbers are being added to Wikipedia biographical articles and are incorporated into Wikidata. VIAF's clustering algorithm is run every month; as more data are added from participating libraries, clusters of authority records may coalesce or split, leading to some fluctuation in the VIAF identifier of certain authority records.

Fantagraphics Books is an American publisher of alternative comics, classic comic strip anthologies, graphic novels, the erotic Eros Comix imprint. Many notable cartoonists publish their work through Fantagraphics, including Jessica Abel, Peter Bagge, Ivan Brunetti, Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Mary Fleener, Roberta Gregory, Joe Sacco, Chris Ware, the Hernandez brothers. Fantagraphics was founded in 1976 by Mike Catron in College Park, Maryland; the first act of the new company was the takeover of an adzine named The Nostalgia Journal, renamed The Comics Journal. As comics journalist Michael Dean writes, "the publisher has alternated between flourishing and nearly perishing over the years." Kim Thompson joined the company in 1977. The company moved from Maryland to Stamford and Los Angeles. Beginning in 1981, lasting until 1992, Fantagraphics published Amazing Heroes, a magazine which examined comics from a hobbyist's point of view. Beginning in 1979, Fantagraphics began publishing comics, starting with Jay Disbrow's The Flames of Gyro.
They gained wider recognition in 1982 by publishing the Hernandez brothers' Love and Rockets, moved on to such critically acclaimed and award-winning series as Acme Novelty Library and Hate. Catron acted as Fantagraphics' co-publisher until 1985. From 1985–1987, Fantagraphics coordinated and presented The Jack Kirby Award for achievement in comic books, voted on by comic-book professionals; the Kirby Award was managed by a Fantagraphics employee. In 1987, a dispute arose when Fantagraphics each claimed ownership of the awards. A compromise was reached, starting in 1988, the Kirby Award was discontinued and two new awards were created: the Eisner Award, managed by Olbrich. Since their inception, the Harvey Awards have been presented at various comic book conventions, such as the Chicago Comicon, the Dallas Fantasy Fair, WonderCon, the Pittsburgh Comicon, the MoCCA Festival, Baltimore Comic-Con and their current venue, the New York Comic Con; the Harvey Awards are no longer affiliated with Fantagraphics.
In 1989, Fantagraphics relocated from Los Angeles to its current location in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. In 1990, the publisher introduced Eros Comix, a lucrative line of erotic comics which again saved the company from bankruptcy. Longtime employee Eric Reynolds joined Fantagraphics in 1993, first as news editor for The Comics Journal from 1993, before moving to marketing and promotion in 1996. Tom Spurgeon, now publisher of The Comics Reporter, was editor of The Comics Journal from 1994–1999. In 1998, Fantagraphics was forced into a round of layoffs. One employee quit during the subsequent downsizing while denouncing Fantagraphic's "disorganization and poor management." Fantagraphics was saved by a restructuring and a successful appeal to comic book fandom that resulted in a huge number of orders. After restructuring, the company has had greater success with such hardcover collections as The Complete Peanuts, distributed by W. W. Norton & Company. In 2009 Fantagraphics ceased publishing the print edition of The Comics Journal, shifting from an eight-times a year publishing schedule to a larger, more elaborate, semi-annual format supported by a new website.
Starting in 2005, Fantagraphics began a European graphic novel line, starting with the co-publication of the Ignatz Series and produced by the Italian artist Igort. The publisher announced a deal with Jacques Tardi in March 2009, that would see co-publisher Thompson translate a large number of his books. In 2006, Fantagraphics opened its own retail store, Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood. In early 2012, Michael Catron returned to Fantagraphics as editor with the company he had co-founded 36 years earlier. Co-publisher Kim Thompson left Fantagraphics due to illness in March 2013, died of lung cancer a few months later, his absence left the company without a number of titles it had been counting on for the summer and fall of 2013. An outpouring of support from readers enabled the company to reach and surpass its fundraising goal in just four days; the Ignatz Series is an international comic imprint. It is published by Fantagraphics Books, Avant Verlag, Oog & Blik, Coconino Press, Sinsentido.
It is named for a character in the comic strip Krazy Kat. The books in the Ignatz series are designed midway between standard North American comic book pamphlet-size and graphic novel-size; each title is 32-pages, 2-color, saddlestitched, 8½" × 11", with jacket, priced at $7.95. The Ignatz collection is produced by Italian artist Igort. Fantagraphics editor Kim Thompson provides translations; the Ignatz series comprises the following titles: Baobab 1, 2 & 3 by Igort Calvario Hills Vol. 1 by Marti Niger 1 &2 by Leila Marzocchi Insomnia 1, 2 & 3 by Matt Broersma Delphine 1, 2, 3 & 4 by Richard Sala Ganges 1, 2 & 3 by Kevin Huizenga Grotesque 1 & 2 by Sergio Ponchione Babel 1 & 2 by David B Innocents 1 & 2 by Gipi Reflections 1, 2 & 3 by Marco Corona New Tales of Old Palomar 1, 2

Malice is the co-creator and founding editor of the humor blog Overheard in New York that posts submissions of conversations heard by eavesdroppers in New York City.
Launched in 2003, the site was inspired by a conversation overheard by co-creator S. Morgan Friedman. A book based on some of the site's submissions was published in 2006. Malice is the subject of Harvey Pekar's 2006 biographical graphic novel Ego & Hubris: The Michael Malice Story, illustrated by Gary Dumm; as the title suggests, the biography deals with the development of Malice's egoic personality, a characteristic that Malice does not dispute.

Caliber Comics or Caliber Press is an American comic book publisher founded in 1989 by Gary Reed. Featuring creator-owned comics, in the next decade Caliber published over 1300 comics and ranked as one of America's leading independent publishers. Caliber ceased publishing in 2000, but resumed operations in 2015. Reed died in 2016, but the company has continued publishing. Gary Reed, who owned a chain of bookstores, began publishing with the release of two titles acquired from Arrow Comics—Deadworld and The Realm. Other initial launches included Caliber Presents, featuring the work of Vince Locke, Mark Bloodworth, Tim Vigil, James O'Barr, Guy Davis. Reed arranged with "Pocket Classics", a series of illustrated books similar in design to Classics Illustrated, to be released to the direct market via Caliber Press. Over forty titles were distributed; the interest in literary works continued for Caliber when in 1991 the new imprint Tome Press was launched. Tome featured biographical material in addition to literature.
Over 65 different Tome Press titles would be released on subjects as diverse as the Russian Revolution, The Alamo, Amelia Earhart, El Cid, Jack London stories, reprints of classic art print series, dozens of others. After its initial launch, Caliber expanded by bringing in new projects. Jim Calafiore was first published with Progeny. In Grafik Muzik, Mike Allred introduced his Madman character, Kevin VanHook's Frost series, the storyline for the film released in 2002, Ted Slampyak's Jazz Age Chronicles, Philip Hester's Fringe, Stuart Immonen's Playground, John Bergin's Ashes, other titles such as Go-Man, Varcel's Vixens, more. In the early 1990s, Caliber launched three new imprints and Iconografix. Gauntlet was an action-based line whose leading titles were U. N. Force, Patrick Zircher's Samurai Seven, Serpent Rising. Iconografix dealt with more obscure and cutting-edge material that included humor comics as well as comics referred to as the "slice of life." Included here were the first issues of Ed Brubaker's Lowlife, Meatcake from Dame Darcy, Bound & Gagged from Michael Aushenker, a number of projects from Dave Cooper, Jason Lutes, Matt Howarth.
Caliber had ventured into licensed comics with their early release of Moontrap, the science fiction film starring Star Trek's Walter Koenig, the production of a comic for Troma Films called Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo. Another licensed property was Mechanoid Invasion, a 1981 RPG from Palladium Books made into a 3-book comic called The Mechanoids beginning in Spring 1991. Another comic property affiliated with Caliber called Justice Machine had been adapted into a Heroes Unlimited sourcebook by Palladium; this was based on the original Noble Comics version by Gustovich in 1981, while Caliber distributed the New Justice Machine sequel by Ellis from 1989. The expansion of Caliber continued with projects including Michael Lark's Airwaves, Silencers from Mark Askwith and R. G. Taylor, Negative Burn, the anthology title that would run for 50 issues and was picked up by Desperado Publishing. In late 1993, Caliber merged with the Stabur Corporation. Reed became president of Stabur as well as staying on with Caliber.
Caliber began to produce special comics for Wal-Mart, including the series Big Bang Comics, a number of literary adaptations, including a version of Frankenstein. Caliber produced some records and a specialty magazine, ARC, for distribution outside comics. In 1993, the principles of Stabur were involved in starting up a new toy company with Spawn creator Todd McFarlane. Reed was named vice president of McFarlane Toys while still running Caliber. Jim Pruett was hired to take over some of the editorial duties of Caliber. Reed would stay with McFarlane Toys until May 1996. Caliber expanded in the mid-1990s with titles such as David Mack's Kabuki, Brian Bendis' A. K. A. Goldfish and Jinx, Mark Ricketts' Nowheresville, Mike Carey and Michael Gaydos on Inferno, in 1995, Caliber launched the sub-imprint of New Worlds. New Worlds' titles were loosely connected, included Raven Chronicles, Seeker, Saint Germaine, Red Diaries, Black Mist, others. Although not an actual shared universe, the settings and characters could cross over with each other and did.
As Caliber expanded, more editorial staff was hired to handle the growing line of comics. Moebius Comics launched and fan favorites Mr. Monster and Maze Agency returned. Caliber handled the distribution of Amazing Comics. Brian Lumley's Necroscope and Whitley Strieber's Communion series were signed on for comic releases. Jon Sable from Mike Grell never came out. Caliber started a new imprint in 1997, Tapestry Comics, that featured an "all ages" approach; as the overall comic market declined with the consolidation of the distribution system, Caliber cut back on the number of titles. Caliber found some success of producing comics that appealed outside the usual comics market with some of the Tome Press titles including the Sherlock Holmes Reader, which had the majority of its sales outside the traditional comic stores; the demise of Caliber can be attributed to the problems associated with the Spawn PowerCardz game. Caliber had invested in time and money to launch the collectible card game and had g
