Time Magazine: Peanuts in the Gallery

Time magazine has a good article on the two Los Angeles museums showing a large 900 piece exhibit on the history of American Comics that I reported on earlier.

Says John Carlin, curator:

When I started doing research, I felt this was a lost continent. Comics are one of the most important forms of artistic expression in America, and they were never given proper attention.” To focus that attention, Carlin and fellow curator Brian Walker selected 15 artists who created their own visual languages and did so with distinctive graphic grace and power.

Some of the artists represented in the exhibit:
Charles Schulz (Peanuts), E.C. Segar (Popeye), Chester Gould (Dick Tracy), Milton Caniff (Terry and the Pirates), and Winsor McCay (Little Nemo).
