Comics and the 1950s

Your hero of this blog talks about comics and cartoons of the 1950s at the Long Island Museum on Sunday, October 21, 2012 in this photo by Ed Betz for Newsday.

I gave a presentation on the anti-comic book crusade, and the magazine gag cartoons of the 1950s this past Sunday.  I had a terrific time and I think the audience did as well. I'm grateful that many of my cartoonist friends were able to attend and, during the Q&A afterward, contribute their take on that time.

Newsday has an overview of the 1950s exhibit at the Long island Museum in "Exhibit recalls postwar Long Island" by Nicole Fuller.
