In the 1940′s and 50′s while Superman and Wonder Woman reigned supreme, they still had to share space with dozens of characters, Little Lulu, Dennis the Menace, Scrooge McDuck and many more.  Recently, Art Spiegelman and Francoise Mouly published “The Toon Treasury of Classic Children’s Comics,” a collection of some of these best loved titles.  SundayArts spoke to them in their Soho studio.

    Looking forward to Art Spiegelman and I hope Francoise Mouly attending the Platinum Age Lunch Friday at noon during the 2012 rendition of the Platinum Age Lunch I co-created with former CNDBI director Thierry Groensteen and long time curator Jean-Pierre Mercer more than a decade ago. We are all in attendance going to inaugurate the Bill Blackbeard Award for out-standing comics history research. Art Spiegelman, Leo De Sa from Portugal and myself brainstormed back then how to get Bill to come over for such an honor then, but he was already of too ill health to make the trek even then. It’s time has come, as no USA comicon has to date figured out such a no brainer. It’s inscription will read “To A Person Who Helped Save The Comics.”
