Since their debut in the 1930s, comic books have been a regular part of our pop-culture landscape. These pulp treasures also provide a fascinating lens through which to view our nation’s past, present and potential future. In this interactive presentation, journalist and educator T. Andrew Wahl explores how everything from social movements to business concerns to changing demographics have shaped the reality seen in the pages of comics. Drawing from comics, Wahl shows how four-color heroes aren’t merely confined to paper—they shape the world we live in.
