Four-Color Reality: How Comic Books and the Real World Shape Each Other
In honor of National Spider-Man Day, the library is proud to offer this Humanities Washington program presented by journalist, editor, and editorial cartoonist T. Andrew Wahl. Wahl explores how social movements, business concerns, and changing demographics have shaped the reality seen in the pages of comics. Wahl draws examples from comics such as Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Captain America, and others, Wahl shows how four-color heroes aren't only heroes on paper—they shape our world.
