arlen schumer2Print is excited to announce this week’s Designer of the Week: comic book historian, writer, illustrator and designer Arlen Schumer. You might recall Print’s longtime contributor Michael Dooley writing about Schumer’s fight for artist-creator credit years ago. Just this week Dooley urged us all to attend Schumer’s upcoming lecture for the Type Director’s Club of New York‘s exhibition centered on lettering artist Ira Schnapp.

Dooley writes, “Arlen Schumer is a force to be reckoned with. He’s peerless in his unique knowledge and perspectives on the art and design of superhero comics. … And his presentations are not to be missed. … Bottom line: Go. See. Hear. Learn. And be very entertained.”
