“REQUIEM FOR ROBBINS: The DC Comics Art of Frank Robbins” free webinar!

Wednesday, August 4 @ 6:00pm EST

In 1971, Frank Robbins, already established for years as a DC Comics writer on their Batman titles, became the first creative talent to both write and illustrate a Batman story in the character’s published history, the first of five that Robbins would execute over the next year.

Then, in 1974, Robbins illustrated for DC four issues of one of Batman’s major inspirations, The Shadow. Both of Robbins’ runs created considerable controversy among fans at the time for his radical, stylized approach to “superhero” illustration, one that continues to elicit strong reactions, fifty years later.

So come and see and hear comics historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) give a detailed and visually dynamic webinar on these intriguing illustrated works by Frank Robbins—and find out what the controversy over Robbins’ comics is all about!
