TO THE BABY BOOM GENERATION that grew up on his work, Curt Swan (1920-1996) was, is, and forever will be the DEFINITIVE Superman artist!
Over the course of his almost-three decade run on the character (1957-1986), Swan depicted many of the landmark events that became touchstones in the lives of the Superman family. His versions of familiar aspects of the character’s iconography, from the scenes of a doomed Krypton to sights of Superman soaring above the Metropolis skyline, became the new icons against which ALL succeeding Superman artists are judged.
In this 2nd installment of THE GREAT COMIC BOOK ARTISTS OF THE SILVER AGE webinar series by comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), running the last Wednesday of each month in 2021, each of the dozen artists’ Silver Age- era work is delved into, discussed, and boldly displayed on screen in ways that graphically communicate comic book art’s sequential, page-turning nature, so you’ll truly “see,” as if for the first time, the comics you’ve only ever “read” before!
