Comic Art in Museums - Kim A. Munson
Comic Art in Museums - Kim A. Munson (384 pages, English, softcover, published by University Press of Mississippi)
Through essays and interviews, Kim A. Munson’s anthology tells the story of the over-thirty-year history of the artists, art critics, collectors, curators, journalists, and academics who championed the serious study of comics, the trends and controversies that produced institutional interest in comics, and the wax and wane and then return of comic art in museums.
"In this collection, Munson takes us inside the courtroom of the museum where, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, the nature of art is on trial. Valuable for both fans and academics alike, this collection provides the groundwork for debate in future graduate and undergraduate courses on sequential art, museum studies, and art history." - Robert Ribera, Portland State University, Journal of Popular Culture
