Superheroes in Gotham
October 9, 2015 - February 21, 2016
It’s time to unleash the Bat Signal, folks, because the New York Historical Society is about to get in touch with its inner-comic nerd this fall. Starting on 10/9, this exciting exhibit will explore the New York origins of the six major DC and Marvel superhero comics, which date back all the way to the 1930s. Come see how the stories evolved from the page to the small and silver screen and the effect they have had throughout our culture. The installation will also include rarities such as a 1938 copy of Action Comics #1, featuring the first appearance of Superman, as well as Batman #1, circa 1940.
