The Silver Age of Comic Book Art
Comic book art historian Arlen Schumer's live presentation based on his coffee table book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art. It explores the origins of the superhero tradition and their personification of American ideals and values, and how these attitudes are portrayals changed during the turbulent decade and the characters they drew, from establishment superheroes like The Flash, The Atom and Green Lantern, to counterculture super-antiheroes like Spider-Man, Dr. Strange and Green Arrow. You'll not only see where Hollywood's love affair with superhero movies comes from--but because Schumer projects comic book panels and pages in a way that graphically communicates the sequestial nature of comic book art itself, you'll see comics like you've never seen them before!
