THIS SUNDAY MAY 5th, 2013 @ 3:00pm! In an incredible multimedia gallery space, part of Stepping Stones Museum's YES2 Youth Program's 1st Comic Book Mini-Convention! A screen the size of a small IMAX to project on! Comic book images like you've never seen 'em before!
I'll be going though not only "The First 25 Years" of my comic book history works (since my instigating the Fall '88 PRINT mag special comics issue), but "the first 25 years" of my childhood and young adult years, from being the art director of BATMANIA mag in high school to working for Batman's greatest artist, Neal Adams, after art school (like getting paid to go to graduate school), and then creating a career illustrating in a comic book style, and parlaying comic book history to audiences around the country!
And hey, adults--it ain't just for kids! There'll be plenty of adults/parents, and ALL ages are invited!
And if you CAN'T make it in person...

Comic art, beginning in the early 20th century as comic strips before evolving into comic books, has always been a fount of incredible, and incredibly beautiful, pure illustration—and in this “VisuaLecture,” as comic book historian and member of The Society of illustrators Arlen Schumer (author/designer of the award-winning coffeetable book The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) calls his supergraphic approach to staid art history presentations, Schumer provides an historical overview of the twin mediums and how they’ve intersected—and intersected in his own comic art-styled illustration and design work—that is as enlightening as it is entertaining; edutainment at its best!
