"Comic book art historian Arlen Schumer’s presentation based on his book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, explores the origins of the American superhero and its personification of American ideals and values, and how these attitudes and portrayals changed during the turbulent 1960s. The works of the 8 artists in the book are highlighted—Carmine Infantino, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Gil Kane, Joe Kubert, Gene Colan, Jim Steranko and Neal Adams—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 sequential nature of comic book art itself—you'll see comics like you've never seen them before!”
