ZAP! POW! BAM! Comic Book Super Hero Exhibition Opens in Los Angeles

The Comic Book Listings Blog: Presents;

The Skirball Cultural Center opening of,

ZAP! POW! BAM! THE SUPERHERO
The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938–1950
February 19–August 9, 2009

The West Coast debut at the Skirball features exclusive companion exhibition, Lights, Camera, Action: Comic Book Heroes of Film and Television

LOS ANGELES—Remember the thrill of hiding under the covers to read comic books after lights out? Many of us do. Along with movies, comics may be the quintessential American art form, and they owe their enduring popularity to precedents established during the Great Depression and World War II. ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938–1950 tells the story of this exciting moment in popular culture, when Superman (1938), Batman (1939), Wonder Woman (1941), Captain Marvel (1940), and numerous other Superheroes were born.

On view at the Skirball Cultural Center, in its first West Coast engagement, from February 19 through August 9, 2009, ZAP! POW! BAM! was organized by the Breman Museum in Atlanta and is guest curated by Jerry Robinson, part of the original Batman team and a lifelong professional cartoonist. Through never-before-exhibited art and objects culled from private and institutional collections, the exhibition explores the early years of the comic book format and the genesis of the Superhero as cultural icon. Objects on view include rare vintage artwork and books, 1940s Hollywood movie serials, and colorful interactive displays, including a drawing studio, newsstand, vintage Batmobile ride, and stations that allow children to dress up as Superheroes via a quick costume change in a telephone booth. In addition, the Skirball has organized an exclusive companion exhibition, Lights, Camera, Action: Comic Book Heroes of Film and Television.

Robinson will give a curator’s talk on ZAP! POW! BAM! on Thursday, March 5, at 8:00 p.m. An artist on the Batman series, Robinson is credited with creating the first enduring comic book villain, The Joker, and naming Robin, Batman’s crime-fighting, “boy wonder” companion. He has published some thirty books on comic book art and served as president of both the National Cartoonists Society and the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. As the season progresses, the Skirball Cultural Center will continue to schedule films, lectures, classes, and family programs that explore issues in the exhibition.


Background

Emerging from serialized comic strips in daily newspapers, the comic book—containing an entire narrative in a magazine format—found enormous popular success in the 1930s. It was perhaps telling that Superman, rejected as a syndicated strip, instead became the first comic book Superhero in 1938. In the midst of the economic and political turmoil of the 1930s and 1940s, Americans were hungry for escapist entertainment. In Superman and his many super-compatriots, the popular imagination embraced champions—whose alter egos were ordinary people—who symbolized human potential and the triumph of good over evil.

The Superhero genre was created, for the most part, by young Jewish artists, primarily products of New York City high schools, often with refugee teachers who had fled Nazi persecution. Drawn to one of the few professions open to Jewish artists at that time, the comic book creators shaped the values of a generation, encapsulating “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” in every story. Tapping universal mythological and religious prototypes (note Superman’s “Achilles heel” or the parallel of his origins and Moses’s), the Superheroes provided characters with deep emotional resonance.

As the world went to war, these champions of the common man became defenders of America’s freedom and ideals. Comic artwork was used in propaganda posters, war themes imbued comic books, and new characters rose to the rescue, including Yankee Doddle Jones, Boy Commandos, Uncle Sam, and Atomic Man.


ZAP! POW! BAM! Overview
Offering an immersive, interactive world of Superheroes, ZAP! POW! BAM! includes more than seventy never before-displayed comic books and memorabilia. Concept sketches, original artwork, and scripts, including items from Jerry Robinson’s personal collection, offer insight into the creative process. The broad influence of comic books can be seen in the many toys, collectibles, and promotional items in the exhibition, including puzzles and games, toy race cars, dime banks, tattoo transfers, and punch-out figures. Visitors can go back in time in a theater showing 1940s movie theater serials, and watch video interviews of comic book legends.
Special highlights for kids include an original, working Batmobile ride, a vintage interactive phone booth, a comic drawing studio, a 1940s-style newsstand with comics to read, an interactive Kryptonite display, and child-sized costumes to try on.

Among the talented creators of comic books featured in the exhibition are Will Eisner (the “father of the graphic novel” and creator of The Spirit); Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson (the Batman team); Jack Kirby (cocreator of Captain America); Stan Lee (co-creator of Spider-Man); and Jules Schwartz (editor of Green Lantern).

Other featured creators include Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel (co-creators of Superman), artist C.C. Beck (Captain Marvel), writer Otto Binder (Captain America and Captain Marvel), publishers Martin Goodman, and M.C. Gaines, and more.


Lights, Camera, Action Overview

The Skirball has organized an exclusive companion exhibition to ZAP! POW! BAM! exploring the long connection between comic book Superheroes and the moving image. Superheroes have been a vital part of American popular culture ever since the first appearance of Superman in Action Comics established the comic book as a viable artistic form. Almost immediately after their rise to prominence in comic books, Superheroes transcended their pulpy origins to find expression in theater, music, films, and television. Lights, Camera, Action examines the close relationship and parallel development of the comic book and motion picture industries. Objects on view include the original 1966 Batcycle from the Batman television series on loan from the Petersen Automotive Museum, along with vintage movie posters on loan from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, original comic books on loan from the University of California, Riverside, and other movie and television memorabilia.
