THE SILVER AGE OF CARMINE INFANTINO via NY Adventure Club this Wednesday, August 19 @ 12:30pm EST:
If DC Comics was the Cadillac of comic book publishers at the dawn of The Silver Age of Comics (circa 1956-70), then artist Carmine Infantino was their man at the wheel: his slick, streamlined style was the sine qua non of The Silver Age!
His delineation of the first true Silver Age superhero, super-speedster The Flash, and Infantino’s two-dimensional depictions of speed and motion—among many graphic innovations Infantino developed during his eleven-year run on the strip—remain benchmarks in the comic book medium.
Science-fiction landscapes and motifs received Infantino’s signature stylization in his concurrent, memorable run on DC’s interplanetary hero Adam Strange. With his more down-to-earth Batman, whom he redesigned for the 1960s (clearing the runway for the runaway success of the 1966 television series), Infantino earned his place in the pantheon of definitive Batman artists.
So come join New York Adventure Club and comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as he presents an overview of Infantino’s illustrious Silver Age career, dynamically displaying his comic book panels, pages and covers so that you’ll feel like you’re seeing them for the first time!
