The Cartoon Art Museum and the Japan Society of Northern California welcome award-winning author and book designer Chip Kidd on Thursday, June 17 for a special presentation entitled Bat-Manga! A Secret Look at the Secret History of Batman in Japan. Kidd, author of Bat-Manga!, presents a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the book, as well as recently discovered original art by Jiro Kuwata from his Batman manga work of over 40 years ago. Images in Kidd’s presentation will not overlap or repeat the pieces hanging in the exhibition, so make sure to attend for this exclusive look at one of the most fascinating cross-pop-cultural phenomenons of the late 20th century.
The suggested donation for this event is $5.
