The Super Type of Ira Schnapp

Would you believe the artist who designed in Roman letters the motto engraved atop New York City's Penn Station post office, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night" is the same man who designed the iconic Superman logo? Both are the works of Ira Schnapp (1892-1969), a descendant of stonecutters and hand letterer who defined the "house style" of DC Comics for over 30 years, starting with the Action Comics logo in 1938 and continuing with scores of famous logos for the company, as well as hundreds of house ads that are among some of the greatest examples of hand lettering in the 20th century. Yet, despite all these ubiquitous works, Schnapp's name and legacy are unknown and forgotten. But comic book historian Arlen Schumer (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) aims to change that with this presentation, based on the currently running Schnapp exhibit he curated and designed for the Type Directors Club of New York.

Comics Arts Conference #12: The Poster Session

The CAC's poster session gives attendees the opportunity to interact directly with presenters. Damien Tomaselli (University of Kwazulu-Natal) examines how the parameters of the comics medium affect the comic book visual rhetoric with reference to print and its transformation and transcendence into digital. Elizabeth Laska, McKenzi Topp, Antonio Hamilton, Daniel Nero, and Ruby Walden (all from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks) evaluate not only how deity characters, such as "The Presence" in DC Comics and God/Jesus in Marvel interact with superheroes and their worlds but also how their actions are dictated by cultural norms and beliefs through time. Martha Althea Webber and Nicole Rehnberg (California State University, Fullerton) discuss how Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story andMarch memorialize specific events from the Civil Rights Movement while at the same time model tactics of nonviolent action. Timothy Stiven (Canyon Crest Academy), Zac Brown (Canyon Crest Academy), Amanda Toothacre (Carmel Valley Middle School), Adrienne Rozells (Windy and the Spirit Skies), and Arathi Kumar (Windy and the Spirit Skies) present the student-designed graphic novel Windy and the Spirit Skies, and share the process the students and faculty went through to create this project. Scott Daniel Boras (Normandale Community College) offers an examination of the stylistic methods used in Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro's b***h Planet to subversively challenge contemporary gender politics. Kristin M. Tamayo (California Polytechnic State University, Pomona) presents findings from a qualitative case study that collected and analyzed multimodal reading responses from five college students as they read Peter Kuper's 2003 retelling, as well as the original print-based text, of Kakfa's Metamorphosis. Matt Yockey (University of Toledo) and Shani McLoyd (Huron Valley Consultation) consider how longstanding tropes of the superhero genre have been productively integrated into psychiatric treatment of children and young adults dealing with their own trauma. Cathy Leogrande (Le Moyne College) examines what it means to be physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially typical in superhero comics. Shelley Lloyd (Clemson University) explores the ways in which Bucky Barnes's Soviet past, and the political climate of a post-9/11 America, make him an unlikely candidate for the role of America's staunchest patriot and yet ultimately the most fitting choice for a post-9/11 Captain America. Antero Garcia (Colorado State University) and Peter Carlson (Green Dot Public Schools) highlight how interactions between heroes like Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, and Ms. Marvel and their local communities become models of civic engagement for readers. Amber Hancock (California State University, Fullerton) demonstrates how the identity crisis of Invasion's Scottish hero Saltire not only expands to include Scotland itself but also highlights how regional perspectives affect national identity. Annamarie O'Brien (Penn State University) compares the depictions of the female body in the work of women's memoir comics to first-person narratives with female protagonists by men, considering the ways in which the feminine bodies are re-imagined through the unique formal constraints of the medium. June M. Madeley (University of New Brunswick, Saint John) presents a preliminary analysis of interviews conducted with manga readers and anime viewers from outside of Japan to investigate their fan activity, readership, viewing, and meaning-making practices. J. D. Boucher (Western Washington University) analyzes the portrayal of women in the first six issues of Captain Marvel, attending especially to how these representations compare to previous depictions of women in mainstream superhero comics. Jeremiah Massengale (University of the Cumberlands) discusses the types of social issues addressed (and notably absent) from the hundreds of Twilight Zone comics from 1962 to 1979. Allen Thomas (University of Central Arkansas) uses qualitative interviews and thematic coding to highlight what LGBTQ readers find valuable and helpful in reading comics as therapy. Matthew J. Brown (University of Texas at Dallas) analyzes how the recent surge in scholarly attention to William Moulton Marston, the creator of Wonder Woman, shows that comics studies as a field should practice a more deliberate form of interdiscipline. Victoria Minnich ("Accidental Anthropologist") details the outcome of her comics-based intervention in disputes at the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market to show that comics are a powerful mediation tool in which the visual language and tactful humor can result in conflict reduction. Barbara Glaeser (California State University, Fullerton), Debra Ambrosetti (California State University, Fullerton), and Amanda Francis (Crafton Hills College) present the findings of their study on the relationship between comic book reading and feelings of social separation and self-esteem issues. Sean Joseph Shuttleworth, Dillon Hall, and Dylan Weaver (all of Henderson State University) ask whether traumatic experiences shape, motivate, or influence fictional characters and living people in different ways. P. Andrew Miller (Northern Kentucky University) discusses the development of his class on writing the graphic novel and the different exercises he developed for teaching the class and work shopping the student's work. Eric Bruce (Western Oregon University) analyzes Batman and the city of Gotham using the Ecological Model for Health Promotion, a public health model that not only addresses an individual's risk factors but also investigates interpersonal, organizational, community, and public policy norms that create conditions for risk factors; and shows how this model can be used in a classroom environment.
