DIGITAL DISCUSSION: UNDERGROUND HEROES - NEW YORK TRANSIT IN THE COMICS JanuaryJan 21 2021 02:00pm - 03:00pmOnline

New York City’s rich visual vernacular is a colorful setting for illustrated stories, so it comes as no surprise that our iconic transportation system has played a starring role in comics and graphic novels.  Over the years, artists have been inspired to place the stories of humans, superheroes, monsters, and more in the city’s neighborhoods and on public transit.

Join Associate Curator Jodi Shapiro as we take a virtual ride through the recent exhibition, “Underground Heroes: New York Transit in the Comics”. Discover the ways that satirical cartoons, comic strips, and comic books by a range of visual storytellers have been used to bring the stories- and histories- of New York to life.
