“The Silver Age of Comic Book Art Returns” Friday 5:00pm
Ten years ago, comic book historian Arlen Schumer’s book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, won the Independent Publishers’ Award for Best Book about Popular Culture—but then went out of print shortly after. Now back in a revised, expanded hardcover—and ebook—edition, Schumer’s presentation explores the origins of the superhero traditions and their personification of American ideals and values, and how these attitudes and portrayals changed during the turbulent decade of the 1960s. You'll not only see where Hollywood's love affair with superhero movies comes from— but because Schumer projects comic book panels and pages in a way that graphically communicates the sequential nature of comic book art itself, you'll “see” comics like you've never seen them before!

“Bill Finger: The Man Who Made Batman, Batman” Saturday 12:45pm
On the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of Batman’s debut, comic book historian Arlen Schumer (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) examines the origins of the character, concentrating specifically on the contributions of artist Bob Kane’s writer/partner, Bill Finger, whose graphic recommendations and other concepts and ideas gave Batman his initial look and mystique, qualities intact in the character to this day. In his presentation, Schumer recreates, step by step, the never- seen, unpublished first sketch Kane showed Finger before bringing it to DC Comics, based on Kane’s and Finger’s own recollections.

“Art & Comic Book Art” Sunday 1:45pm
Just as art historians look back 500 years ago on the great Renaissance masters of the human figure like Michelangelo and Raphael, so too will art historians 500 years from now look back on the great masters of the human figure of our time, our great comic book artists like Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, Carmine Infantino, Gil Kane—to name a few. Yet in fine art circles, it is still considered argumentally blasphemous to compare/contrast the two sets of artists. Join comic book historian Arlen Schumer (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as he does just that, with his provocative, perceptive presentation, based on his verbal/visual essay in the Fall 2014 hardcover comix anthology, A-1.
