Paul Pope in conversation with Pixar’s Dr. Michael B. Johnson
Cartoon Art Museum Event: Thursday, March 18, 2010 7pm to 9pm
$5 suggested donation

San Francisco, CA: The Cartoon Art Museum welcomes the critically-acclaimed comic book creator Paul Pope for a special presentation on Thursday, March 18, 2010, from 7pm to 9pm. Pope is the creator of such unforgettable comics as THB, Heavy Liquid, 100% and Batman: Year 100. Pope will discuss his comics career with Pixar’s Dr. Michael B. Johnson, a longtime member of the Cartoon Art Museum’s Board of Directors. A booksigning will follow this discussion.

The suggested donation for this event is $5. Doors will open at 6:45pm.

About Paul Pope

Creator Paul Pope is an award-winning alternative comics artist best known for his hallucinatory science-fiction series THB. His other comics include Heavy Liquid and 100%. In 1995, Pope began working for Japanese manga publisher Kodansha, creating the series Supertrouble, among other titles. Influenced by European cartoonists like Hergé (Tintin) and Hugo Pratt (Corto Maltese) and by science-fiction writers like Ray Bradbury, Pope is known for his surrealistic sci-fi plots and expressive, thick-lined brushwork.

Paul Pope’s critically acclaimed miniseries Batman: Year 100 uses a futuristic Gotham City to comment on post-9/11 paranoia and invasion of privacy. In the year 2039, Gotham has become a police state where citizens are stripped of their civil rights. Believing that the government is on the verge of a “military coup,” Batman emerges to take on the powerful Gotham police force. Meanwhile, police detectives try to figure out the identity of this new—or possibly old—Batman. A short story featuring Robin, The Boy Wonder, entitled “Teenage Sidekick,” earned Pope the prestigious Eisner Award for Best Short Story in 2007. Selections from both of these stories are currently on display at the Cartoon Art Museum as part of its Batman: Yesterday and Tomorrow exhibition.
