India Comics On Display This Weekend At LA Museum Of Art
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
You might be aware that comics don't just come from the U.S.
"Heroes And Villains: The Battle For Good In India's Comics" will examine the legacy of India's heroes and culture as seen in the comic book genre. The display will include hand-drawn illustrations as well as computer designed animation. A selection of publisher Liquid Comics' series Ramayan and Devi will be part of the exhibit. Liquid Comics was formerly known as Virgin Comics before they were bought out. The comics on display may not have close visual ties to the ancient art, there is a common theme based on storylines and characters involved. The exhibition will also include recent American adaptions including the Indian version of Spider-Man (Pavitr Prabhakar).
If you're in the Los Angeles area, this could be worth checking out to get a little bit of culture in you and to see some different takes on the comic book genre. For more information, visit LACMA's website. The exhibition runs from October 17, 2009 through February 7, 2010.
