This is a topic that has interested me for years. Since the pop masters (Warhol, Lichtenstein, et al) started the pop art revolution of the 60’s, comics have steadily risen into the realm of high art. Since then other artists such as Basquiat, Keith Haring, John Wesley, and Romero Britto (to name a few) have continued to expand the parameters of the cartoon form.
