"Drawing Inspiration: New York City History in Comics"

  • New York Transit Museum 99 Schermerhorn Road Brooklyn, NY United States (map)

A gallery talk, presented in conjunction with the Transit Museum’s exhibition, Underground Heroes: New York Transit in the Comics.

“New York City has played a starring role in comics and graphic novels since the 19th century, with artists placing the stories of humans, superheroes, monsters, and more in its neighborhoods, on its transit systems, and within its historical eras. Joining curator Jodi Shapiro, Karen Green of Columbia University Libraries and comic artists Stan Mack and Peter Kuper will discuss the ways that satirical cartoons, comic strips, and comic books have been used to bring the stories – and histories – of New York to life.”

Details and Tickets $10 / Free for Members
