Indie Spinner Rack Issue #174
ISR is pleased to present one of the most talked about panels from the 2010 MoCCA Art Fest - 'The Art of the Superhero: When Singular Vision Meets Popular Mythology!' Once upon a time, comics defenders made much fuss over how "comics are not just superheroes." We turn the notion on its head, exploring how superheroes can be not only as smart, and as much of a personal artistic expression as the more "literary" autobio and indie comix, but when done right these new myths can be simply sublime. Join true superheroes of the art Frank Miller, Jaime Hernandez, Paul Pope, Kyle Baker & Dean Haspiel as they explore what they find inspiring about the genre and about each others work. Moderated by Jeff Newelt.
