Superheroes in Gotham

For 76 years, superheroes have come into our lives. Today these larger-than-life “role models” – Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman and many others are multi-billion-dollar global brands.
The New York Historical Society has now opened an exhibition which tells the story of the birth of comic book superheroes in New York City; the leap of comic book superheroes from the page into radio, television, and film; the role of fandom, including the yearly mega event known as New York Comic Con; and the ways in which comic book superheroes have inspired and influenced the work of contemporary comic book artists, cartoonists, and painters in New York City.
CBS2’s Vanessa Murdock reports:

Indeed, comic books are a great American art form, a cultural phenomenon born in New York City that now extends around the globe.
Comic book and superhero fans can enjoy "Superheroes in Gotham", October 09, 2015 through February 21, 2016.
