This is a brief interstitial introduction by art historian Kim A. Munson exploring a wide ranging of exhibitions focused on work by individual artists following the “lone genius” concept utilized in the influential 2005 show Masters of American Comics. This chapter discusses the history of blockbuster exhibits like the Mona Lisa’s US visit (1963) and King Tut (1977), retrospectives of elder statesmen (Kirby, Herriman, Goldberg, Eisner), increased valuation of comic art, and narrative in exhibitions with Gary Panter, Art Spiegelman, R. Crumb, and Carol Tyler. Images: exhibition Goldberg, Herriman, Eisner.

Keywords:   Narrative in exhibitions, Carol Tyler, R. Crumb, Gary Panter, Art Spiegelman
