Event dates: Oct 29, 2020

Description: “The 50th ANNIVERSARY OF JACK KIRBY’S NEW GODS” webinar with Arlen Schumer via New York Adventure Club, Thursday, October 29 @ 7:00pm EST

One of the leading new Hollywood writers/directors, Ava DuVernay, was recently announced by Warner Bros. as the director of a forthcoming major motion picture based on the DC Comics characters The New Gods, who were initially published 50 years ago this year! They were the creation of legendary comic book writer/illustrator/editor Jack Kirby, who had co-created, the decade prior, the Marvel Comics universe of characters and stories in conjunction with editor Stan Lee.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the comic book origins of these unique Kirby characters and stories, and how they’ve been a steady influence on pop culture over the decades
- most notably on George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise!

Hosted by award-winning comic book-style illustrator and pop culture historian Arlen Schumer (author/designer, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art), this overview of Kirby’s New Gods - and how it fits into Kirby’s groundbreaking “Fourth World” series of four interrelated, concurrent comic book titles - will make you look at those comics like you never have before!
