Faculty Video: Comics and Popular Culture: a Conversation with Abraham Riesman and Michael Tisserand

On Wednesday, March 24th, BISR’s Suzanne Schneider, Ajay Singh Chaudhary, and Rebecca Ariel Porte were joined by Abraham Riesman, author of True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee, and Michael Tisserand, author of Krazy: George Herriman, a Life in Black and White, for a wide-ranging discussion of comic books and comic strips—what they are, how they work, what they’ve meant, and what they mean. Examining the lives and work of George Herriman, the maker of Krazy Kat, and Stan Lee, the Marvel entrepreneur, they considered the comic artist in their multiple guises: artist, wordsmith, worker, owner, and (in Lee’s case particularly) celebrity.
