Cartoonists Remember September 11, 2001-2011

The Exhibit runs at MoCCA for ONE WEEK ONLY!!! From September 6-12, 2011. Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, marks the 10th anniversary of one of the darkest days in American history. In respect of the occasion, the major comic syndicates have rallied their cartoonists to dedicate their strips on that day to those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks. MoCCA is pleased to be part of a Kings Feature Syndicate effort, bringing together the comics industry to commem-orate the 10th anniversary of September 11 with a special exhibit of themed Sunday Strips. Beginning on Tuesday September 6th, original & production artwork from 12 creators will be on display in MoCCA’s annex gallery, along with a rotating display of all 93 participating artists’ Sunday strips. Joining King Features in this venture are Creators Syndicate, Tribune Media Services, Universal Press Syndicate and Washington Post Writers Group, representing many of the most popular cartoonists in the world’s most influential newspapers and websites. All 93 participating strips, which tend to appear on Sunday newspaper editions in color in their own special pullout section, will have an overarching September 11 remembrance theme that day. In addition to the newspaper tribute, King Features has partnered with the renowned Newseum in Washington, D.C., the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, the Toonseum in Pittsburgh and the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York...

MARVEL COMICS IN THE 1970s is available for preordering now!

By popular demand, TwoMorrows Publishing presents Marvel Comics in the 1970s, the sequel to Pierre Comtois’ heralded first volume on the 1960s! This book covers Marvel’s final historical phase: the twilight years of the 1970s, after the initial ’60s wave of popularity pushed the company to the forefront of the comics industry, and made many of its characters household names. This full decade of pop-culture history saw Stan Lee’s role as writer diminish as he ascended to Publisher, the stunning departure of Jack Kirby to DC (and his later return to Marvel), the rise of Roy Thomas as editor (and eventual Editor In Chief), and the introduction of a new wave of writers and artists who would expand the boundaries of comics beyond super-heroes, while planting the seeds for the company’s eventual self-destruction. Comics such as the Spider-Man “drug” issues, Conan the Barbarian, Tomb of Dracula, Master of Kung Fu, Howard the Duck, the new X-Men, and more are covered in detail—along with the creators who wrote and drew them, including Chris Claremont, Barry Windsor-Smith, Gene Colan, Marv Wolfman, Steve Gerber, John Romita, Gil Kane, Sal Buscema, and many others. So don’t be satisfied with only half the story! Check out Marvel Comics in the 1970s and find out why Marvel was once hailed as The House of Ideas!

STOLEN Thor #216 Cover

Hello All, Sadly, I am going to add to this recent string of posts concerning art thievery… I hesitated reporting this as I hoped that it would miraculously re-materialize/be found hiding in my underwear drawer.  But, I have torn my home apart (even opening my framed art to see if somehow the piece had decided to hide behind a framed piece) and this piece has not appeared. I discovered that this piece was missing as I was running inventory on the pieces that I was going to take with me to SDCC this year.  So, I can place the timeline of the theft somewhere between May 1 and prior to SDCC.  If any of you happens to come across this cover, I will happily shower you with money and/or free vintage comic art panel pages. This piece was on consignment with Will Gabri-El.  But, it was never in his possession.  So, if the item shows up on Will’s site, please do not think that he is the perpetrator. Thanks for your time and BE CAREFUL with your art.  Times are tough for many people right now.  It seems to me that many individuals are getting desperate. Allen – Allen Bush
