This is a brief interstitial introduction by art historian Kim A. Munson explaining how the period of rediscovery and large survey shows of comic art were followed by specialized shows exploring comics by a multitude of topics that were previously ignored or taboo, including shows of work by feminist comic artists, by alternative comic artists, by African American comic artists, erotic comics, and experimental shows of ‘gallery comics.’  The Western style of exhibiting comic art replicated internationally to Manga Museums in Japan and to the Cartoon Museum in the United Arab Emirates.

Keywords:   Feminist comic artists, African American comic artists, Gallery comics, Manga Museum, Cartoon Museum UAE
