G-Man Visits The Cartoon Art Museum In San Francisco [video]

An exhibition dedicated to Gene Colan is featured at the museum.

Did you know there's an actual Cartoon Art Museum?  Is there one in your hometown.  It's an awesome place.  They often feature exhibitions on comic artists.  They currently are featuring the art of Gene Colan.  I loved the John Romita exhibition that ran back in 2002 (I believe).  Seeing the actual art in its true form is different than even seeing the actual comic it came from.  I guess I'm lucky that I live close to San Francisco.  If you ever visit the city, be sure to check out the museum.  Go to their website for more information.

That was awesome!   I love the info about Gene Colan, esp. the bit about Kirby and Cap/Daredevil.  Nice job.

It was fun.  Not sure why Red L.A.M.P. or Captain Cascader didn't want to go over with me.  Picture them...on the Streets of San Francisco...

Amazing collection.  Next time I'm in the bay area I'm going to have to check them out and see if there's anything cool going on.

Fantastic exibits. I could only wish to see such peices as that. Must have been awesome. I mean Iron Man and sub mariner!? Also that daredevil 43 would be awesome to see as contrasting pieces. It's also interesting the way he uses photos, very good idea.

Ha ha....that's what I was gonna say. 
So was it dark inside?  I liked the little bit at the end about not being able to see.  Did anyone stare at you being dressed like that in a museum?

I have an awesome guy that helps out with the videos.  It's the same dude that holds the camera whenever LAMP and I have our chats.  We should maybe turn the camera on him someday.

@Barney Stinson: It was a little darker inside.  I'm not sure if people looked at me or not.  There was a group of kids inside for a field trip but I avoided them.  Some did outside but probably because there was the big camera and me holding a mic.  We even had lunch afterwards at Mel's Diner, which is nearby the museum.
