A VisuaLecture by Comic Book Historian Arlen Schumer
 
To the Baby Boomers who grew up on his work, Curt Swan (1920-1996) was, is, and forever will be the definitive Superman artist!
 
Over the course of his three decade full-time 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!
 
Join comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as he delves into, discusses, and dynamically displays Swan’s Super-works—covers, pages and panels—on screen in ways that will make you see comic book art as you never have before!
