This Saturday, the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco presents a retrospective of a legendary cartoonist, one whose work involves well-known superheroes.
The upcoming exhibition is titled Raw Fury: the Art of Mike Zeck and it features a collection of the artist’s most iconic works, all of which covers his long career with Marvel Comics, and his work on some of the comics’ famous characters including Spider-Man, G.I. Joe, Captain America, and the Punisher. In conjunction with this exhibition, there will also be a full-color catalog to be published, which will feature over fifty pieces of original artwork, an introduction by exhibition curator Charles Costas, and a commentary from Zeck himself. The exhibition will be on view until August 10th.
San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum won’t be only Bay Area spot to check out Zeck’s work.
