Comics Arts Conference #6: Comics Auteurs: Kirby and Eisner at 100

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the births of comics masters Jack Kirby and Will Eisner, whose contributions to comic books and graphic novels cannot be overstated. Marc Greenberg (Golden Gate University School of Law) discusses how copyright law partially helped the Jack Kirby and Jerry Siegel estates get a second bite at the apple in renegotiating publishing deals. Kim Munson (From Panels to Frames: Comic Art in Museums) looks at how recent art shows contribute to the constant rediscovery and reevaluation of Eisner and Kirby's work. Jennifer Willms (University of Koblenz-Landau) delves into the Eisner's comic compendium of Jewish American history and the immigrant experience.
