Arlen Schumer Presents:
THE SILVER AGE OF COMIC BOOK ART

Comic book art historian and illustrator Arlen Schumer’s presentation based on his book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art (Archway Publishing), explores the origins of the superhero traditions, their personification of American ideals and values, and how those attitudes and portrayals changed during the turbulent 1960s, through the works of the eight artists in the book—Carmine Infantino, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby, Gil Kane, Joe Kubert, Gene Colan, Jim Steranko and Neal Adams. You’ll not only see where Hollywood’s love affair with superhero movies comes from—you’ll see comics like you’ve never seen them before!
