Comic Book Art Exhibit in L.A.
by Charlie Roberts
Subtitled " The Superhero:
in the art and history of early in the art
and history of early the nationwide
traveling exhibit superheroes in comic
books will enjoy the nationwide
traveling exhibit located currently at
the Skirball Cultural Center located just
off the 405 freeway at Angeles.
2701 North Sepulveda Blvd. in Los
The exhibit runs through August 9,
2009. Hours are Tuesday- Friday
Noon to 5, and 10 to 5 on Saturday
and Sunday. Admission is $ 10; $ 7 for
Seniors and full time students; and
FREE ADMISSION is offered every
The Skirball is also a museum of
Jewish history with many historical
displays. David Siegel, noted collector
who has been responsible for getting
major Golden Age comic book artists
to Comic-con International over the
last 17+ years, invited my wife Joan
and I to go with him this past Thursday
March 5. Needless to say, Any trip with
David is an adventure unlike no other
The foundation of the exhibit is the
Golden Age original comic book art
collection of Jerry Robinson, one of
Bob Kane's first assistants on Batman
in 1939. Jerry saved many originals
from the trash can, in the days when
comic book art was casually thrown
away as having no value after
publication. Jerry created the first
drawing of the Joker, which is on
display, and also named Batman's
sidekick Robin (hmm....wonder where
that name came from ).
Heritage Galleries originals and art
from collectors Ethan Roberts and Keif
Fromm are also included. Mark
Evanier had an excellent talk with Jerry
on stage, then Jerry stayed to sign
copies of the exhibit catalog. As a
collector, seeing the original art was
the icing on the cake. Joe Shuster,
Fred Ray, Will Eisner, Lou Fine, Mort
Meskin and others key artist-creators
are represented with prime examples
of their work.
We All owe Jerry Robinson a debt of
gratitude for having the foresight to
save this important art for future
generations. Attached are images of
the Skirball promotional card, and a
photo of Jerry and Joan ( both
Excellent Originals !). Go to
