Just a quick note to you fans of comics in the NYC area. I caught the masters of comic art show at the Jewish Museum (92nd and 5th) and it was cool. They had a lot of original art by Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Robert Crumb, Gary Panter, and Chris Ware. Plus a room full of 40’s super-hero art. Well worth a look. I’ve never seen Eisner originals before and they had a couple of whole stories. They also had the whole Kurtzman war piece where the soldiers get into hand to hand combat and one drowns the other. Good stuff.

I also went down to the Society of Illustrators (63rd and Lex) and saw the show of Fantagraphic’s artists. Clowes and Bagge are the big two but there was lots of nice art from a variety of good cartoonists. If you’re in the area check them out.
