Jews and comics at City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport, CT Nov. 14, 2014!

JEWS AND COMICS AT CITY LIGHTS GALLERY IN BRIDGEPORT, CT NOV. 14, 2014!
I'll be presenting my "Jews 'n' Comics" VisuaLecture this Friday night, November 14, 2014 at 6:00pm at the City Lights Gallery in Bridgeport, CT, as part of their "Judaica Now" exhibit (where my Capt. Israel art is being shown—see an earlier post here)! From their site (http://www.citylightsgallery.org/?page_id=3122):

"Exhibiting artist, illustrator, author and editor Arlen Schumer, presents a fascinating survey and slideshow of Jewish comic artists, illustrators and editors who have influenced American pop-culture of the 20th century to the present, creating many of our super-heroes including Superman and Captain America."

Here's an article about a version of it I gave at Rice University in Houston in 2010: http://jhvonline.com/jews-n-comics-talk-sept-p9758-96.htm

And a video of it at San Diego Comicon 2011: http://youtu.be/n-UJwIolIQ0

And I'll be signing copies of my newly-released book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art!

The Silver Age of Comic Book Art

Though I'll be debuting the hardcover edition of my new book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, at the New York Comic Con October 9-12 (and lecturing that Sunday at 3:15), for all those in the NY metro area who couldn't get tickets, I'm happy to announce I'll be presenting the same lecture and signing books the very next night, at the very cool Bowery Poetry Club on Monday, October 13, 2014 at 6:30pm (https://www.facebook.com/events/698427716893543/)! Seating is limited to 80 people, and the $10 ticket price will get you $10 off the $50 hardcover!

ECLECTICKA PODCAST INTERVIEW ON YOUTUBE!

From Eclecticka's Dean Plakas: "Informative and entertaining show, but it always is with special guest Arlen Schumer! Hope to have the Sensei of the Silver Age on again next week with other guests when we discuss the Supreme Court's ruling on whether or not it will hear the Jack Kirby case and the ramifications of its decision either way."

ComiCONN (Aug 15-17, 2014)

ComiCONN Marquee

"I finally got to attend one of Arlen Schumer's panels—this one was called "Art & Comic Book Art," and yes, this man is one heck of a public speaker and he knows art and comic books like nobody else. He entertained and enthralled as he shared his knowledge and ideas about the various connections between fine art and the greatest comic book art—and there are many. When the revised edition of his book comes out, I'll be raving about it!"
