“Liars Club” Comic Book Exhibit Features Greene County World War II Veterans

The last day to see the “Liars Club” exhibit is on Saturday, November 26, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. The month-long exhibit features the book and other works by author/illustrator Michael Fleishman, utilizing a special venue with improved accessibility at 111 Corry Street in Yellow Springs. Copies of the comic book will be available to purchase for $5, with proceeds benefitting the Greene County Council on Aging.

The comic introduces us to a group of vibrant WWII veterans who meet daily for breakfast with tales to tell at a Xenia, Ohio, McDonalds restaurant. Widowers, and almost all in their 90′s, the three “Liars’ Club” veterans have been spending mornings together for about eight years. They joke that maybe 15 percent of their stories are the truth. But Charlie Bath, Earl Ellis, and Jack Newhouse have poignant lessons to share about love, life and liberty.

Other works by Fleishman are also on exhibit. An Associate Professor of Commercial Art at Edison Community College in Piqua and resident of Yellow Springs, Fleishman has also authored six books on illustration and design, including the recent Drawing Inspiration: Visual Artists at Work (Delmar Cengage Learning, 2010).

For more information about the exhibit or to schedule a private viewing, contact the artist at 937-767-7955 or

The Greene County Council on Aging is a not-for-profit countywide organization that promotes independence and quality of life for Greene County senior citizens and caregivers.
