Comics Arts Conference Session #7: Jack Kirby and the Auteur Theory of Comics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Comic book historian Arlen Schumer (author, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) and Randolph Hoppe (The Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center) present their theory that, just like a film's director, not its screenwriter, is considered its true author (auteur in French), so should a comic book artist be considered the auteur of any comic book work done in collaboration with a writer (or a script in any verbal form) and therefore a de facto co-creator and co-author, with the credited writer, of that work. Joining them are editor/publisher John Morrow (The Jack Kirby Collector), comics scholar Charles Hatfield (Hand of Fire), and auteur theorist Craig Fischer (Appalachian State).
