Recently published article about The Comic Art Show, which happened at the downtown branch of the Whitney Museum in New York over the summer of 1983. This show, co-curated by John Carlin (co-curator of Masters of American Comics in 2005) and Sheena Wagstaff (Director of Modern Art at the Metropolitan Museum), was one of the first to display comic art and fine art as equal works in a US art museum setting. In this article I interview Carlin, Wagstaff, Art Spiegelman, Gary Panter, Ann Philbin and Brian Walker, most of whom rejoined later to do the Masters of American Comics show at the Hammer Museum in LA 2005.
