75 years ago, in 1940, as the Nazi conquest of Europe continued and the Battle of Britain raged, the United States watched from the sidelines while instituting the first peacetime draft. At the same time, the world of comics was experiencing an incredible sustained period of invention, as The Joker, Robin, Green Lantern, the Flash, Hawkman, the Spirit, Catwoman, and Captains America and Marvel all debuted! (Not to mention the debuts of pop culture icons Bugs Bunny, and Brenda Starr, and classic movies Fantasia and The Great Dictator!) Showing and discussing historical and cultural factors that made that year so important is a panel including Ben Katchor (Hand-Drying in America; Parsons/The New School), Sherri Craig (Southeastern Louisiana University), Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson (granddaughter of the founder of DC Comics, about whom she's co-writing an upcoming book), Dr. Travis Langley (author of Batman and Psychology), Marguerite Van Cook (The Late Child and Other Animals), and Danny Fingeroth (co-editor of The Stan Lee Universe).
