On Sanders Stage, New Yorker Cartoonist Illustrates Power of Comics | News | The Harvard Crimson


With words and images, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman illustrated the history of comics and his own career as a cartoon artist at Sanders Theatre Friday evening. The event, titled "What the %@&*! Happened to Comics?" was hosted by the Celebrity Series of Boston, an organization that brings performers and artists to characteristic venues in Boston. Spiegelman, who gained acclaim in 1991 for a graphic novel on the Holocaust, Maus, began his chronological tour of comics by sharing images of original drawings and blueprints by artists from the earliest days of comic strips. The images showed techniques on how to tweak physical attributes like jawlines and nose structures to turn a geek into a mobster, or a white man into a black man. "The visual language has contributed to both creating and reinforcing racial and cultural stereotypes," Spiegelman said."
