The Anti-Hero in Contemporary Comics: A Lecture by Dr. Aaron Rosen
Thursday, September 28, 2017
Free for members and High Five Pass cardholders or included with regular admission price.
Would you rather have super strength or super speed? The ability to fly or be invisible? These are some of the questions that comics historically have inspired. But today's graphic novelists have changed all that. Their protagonists are more often anti-heroes than heroes, winning us over by communicating their fears and frailties instead of exercising their superpowers. What can we learn from these anti-heroes? Maybe the true feat isn't catching villains but confronting our demons.
Rocky Mountain College professor, Dr. Aaron Rosen, will discuss these topics and more at his lecture entitled “The Anti-Hero in Contemporary Comics” on Thursday, September 28th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Yellowstone Art Museum.
