The Dodgers aren’t the only ones playing doubleheaders in LA; I’ll be presenting TWO VisuaLectures in ONE night on Tuesday, July 24, for The Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles“The Origin of Jack Kirby’s Black Panther” and “1968: The Year in Comics”!

"The year 1968 is known as one of the most tumultuous years for America in the 1960s, if not in all its history—political and cultural upheaval, the Vietnam War and its protests and demonstrations, the horrific assassinations of King and Kennedy—but in the arts, it was a creative watershed: The Beatles charted their greatest single with “Hey Jude”; in film, director Stanley Kubrick released his timeless masterpiece, 2001: a Space Odyssey; and in the field of comic books, 1968 has to be considered one of its greatest years, because so many Hall-of-Fame artists created some of their best-known, most seminal works of their entire careers, featuring their most iconic characters. My VisuaLecture will detail those creators and their creations in that most impactful year of 1968.”
