University Press of Mississippi

In this interstitial introduction, art historian Kim A. Munson establishes a chronology of museum exhibitions of original comic art between 1930 and 1967, summarizing the importance of historical trends (the popularity of comics exhibits during World War II) and pioneers like Milton Caniff and the National Cartoonist Society. This chapter contextualizes M.C. Gaines’ 1942 Print magazine article about the important touring exhibit The Comic Strip: Its Ancient and Honorable Lineage and Present Significance. This chapter introduces Alvaro de Moya and Pierre Couperie, who were the founders of influential fan groups that led to breakthrough exhibits in Brazil (1951) and in France (1967).

Keywords:   Exhibition history, Milton Caniff, National Cartoonist Society, World War II, National Cartoonist Society
