Exhibit Will Run July Through December
Writer Ernest Hemingway casts a long shadow in
literature that extends into comic books, where he has appeared
alongside Superman, Mickey Mouse and Captain Marvel—he even fought
fascists with Wolverine.
Hemingway in Comics, the book and the exhibit at the Comic-Con Museum,
explore what it means to be a pop culture icon, and how that image can
change over time. Hemingway in Comics celebrates more than 120 of these
comics from 18 countries, from the U.S. and Mexico to the Netherlands
and Latvia. Artists featured in the show include Chris Ware, Colleen
Doran, Cliff Chiang, Steve Rolston, Ryan Inzana, Gabo, Norwegian artist
Jason and many others.
The Comic-Con Museum will host a preview of the show in its theater
lobby during the July convention, then host the full 60+ artifact
exhibition from August to December 2022.
Interviews with author/curator Robert K. Elder are available in advance,
as well as with a few select creators featured in the book.
During the convention, a panel will discuss the show on Saturday (11:30
AM -12:30 PM). Panelists include Robert K. Elder (Hemingway in Comics)
Elliot S! Maggin (Superman, Action Comics), Zander Cannon (Kaijumax,
Smax), Eric Peterson (Jesus Christ: In the Name of the Gun), Dr. Emily
Schindler, director of education at the Comic-Con Museum, plus special
