Press Release:

The Cartoon Art Museum is thrilled to announce its first themed original art fundraising auction, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy: A 25th Anniversary Tribute. Proceeds from the auction will support the Cartoon Art Museum’s operations and public programming as the board and staff prepare for CAM’s grand reopening at 781 Beach Street in San Francisco later this summer.

Since Mike Mignola’s Hellboy first hit the stands in 1993, it has become a cultural sensation, racking up a dozen Eisner Awards and inspiring numerous spinoffs, from a novel line, to video games, to feature films. The Cartoon Art Museum’s fundraising auction, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy: A 25th Anniversary Tribute will feature original artwork from dozens of top graphic novelists, animators, and cartoonists who have drawn inspiration from the master storyteller’s signature creation. Featured artists include Sergio Aragonés (MAD), Harry Bliss (The New Yorker), Jeffrey Brown (Darth Vader and Son), Sam Kieth (Sandman, The Maxx), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), Steve Purcell (Sam and Max), Kent Williams (The Fountain), and more to be announced.

“We’re thrilled to pay tribute to one of the comic world’s greatest creator-owned properties, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, as the series celebrates its 25th anniversary,” said CAM Executive Director Summerlea Kashar. “The staff and board of the Cartoon Art Museum are very grateful for Mike’s assistance with this fundraiser, and we’re overwhelmed by the talent and generosity of the participating artists.”

The online auction will launch on May 15 on eBay, under the user account “cartoonartmuseum” and will continue with new pieces added biweekly throughout the summer. Preview pieces for the auction at our Comic Art Fans page. The Cartoon Art Museum will publish a full color catalog collecting all of the artwork created for this auction as well as an exhibition featuring this material alongside a selection of Mike Mignola’s own Hellboy artwork, tentatively planned for display at the Cartoon Art Museum in fall 2017.

SF – Cartoon Art Museum Celebrates Eisner & Kirby

Press Release:

The Cartoon Art Museum celebrates Will Eisner Week and Jack Kirby: A Centennial Celebration on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 3:00 – 5:00pm at Mission: Comics and Art. Join us as we discuss the life and artwork of the legendary comic creators Will Eisner (born March 6, 1917) and Jack Kirby (born August 28, 1917). Bay Area comic creators Mark Badger (Batman, Julius Caesar), Al Gordon (Legion of Super-Heroes, Justice League), Justin Hall (No Straight Lines), Mario Hernandez (Love and Rockets), Steve Leialoha (X-Men, Fables), Trina Robbins (Wimmen’s Comix) and Judd Winick (Hilo) will discuss Eisner’s career and the impact that his work had on their own artistic endeavors. A book signing will immediately follow the panel discussion.

About WILL EISNER WEEK:
WILL EISNER WEEK is an annual series of celebrations that takes place in multiple cities, timed around Will Eisner’s March 6th birthday. Started in 2009, Will Eisner Week is dedicated to promoting graphic novel literacy, free speech awareness, and the legacy of Will Eisner. This year Will Eisner Week is once again a truly international celebration including England, Scotland and Italy. More details about Will Eisner Week can be found at www.WillEisner.com

About WILL EISNER:

WILL EISNER was born William Erwin Eisner on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined.

In a career that spanned nearly eight decades—from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics—he truly was the “Orson Welles of comics” and the “Champion of the Graphic Novel.” He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena and countless others. One of the comic industry’s most prestigious awards, The Eisner Award, is named after him. Recognized as the “Oscars” of the American comic book business, the Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at Comic-Con International in San Diego, America’s largest comics convention.

About JACK KIRBY:

2017 marks the centenary of the birth of JACK KIRBY, one of Comics’ greatest creators and visionaries and a man whose work, perhaps even more than he was alive, continues to inspire and amaze a worldwide audience, who may not know his name, but who love and are excited by his creations.

Jack Kirby was born as Jacob Kurtzburg on August 28, 1917 in New York City’s Lower East Side, a first-generation son of immigrants, who came of age in the melting pot of tenement life. He began his professional cartooning career simultaneously with the birth of the use of original material in the newest of popular media; the comic book.

Over Kirby’s 50-plus year career, working at all the major and many of the minor comics publishers, he created many of the comic book icons that continue to compel in print and on the screen; Captain America, the Newsboy Legion, the Fantastic Four, the Mighty Thor, The X-Men , The Avengers, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Silver Surfer, Nick Fury and the Agents of SHIELD, The New Gods, Kamandi, Mister Miracle, Captain Victory and legions more.

Jack Kirby, even after his death on February 6, 1994, continues to thrill, entertain and inspire readers, audiences and his fellow professionals and is, if possible, beloved more as an individual, than as the creative force singular in comics history.

Years ago Dino Stamatopoulos wrote a musical comedy (or more appropriately a Light Tragedy with Music) about a small family surviving through a cold winter. Think Sam Shepard meets Moral Orel. Although this play was only performed once, in Chicago, it’s being brought back in the form of a musical graphic novel. However, for San Francisco Sketchfest, for the first time since the original staging, Dino and guests will perform scenes and music from TRENT: a light tragedy with music.

A favorite with audiences, critics, and performers alike, the festival has grown substantially to become a highly anticipated artistic showcase that consistently delivers top quality comedic performances, tributes and panel discussions.
