Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
The villains of Gotham City have proved to be some of the most colorful and imaginative characters in superhero fiction, and now a New York art gallery is looking to enshrine the rogues on its walls.
One-Shot Gallery, located inside St. Marks Comics, is hosting an exhibit titled “Great Villains of Gotham: A Cowardly & Superstitious Lot,” which “aims to give these devils their due” in a stunning collection of fine art pieces by modern artists. The show includes James White’s “Starkade: Rogues,” above, in addition to work by HR-FM, Veronica Fish, Blake Wheeler and others. A surprising name in the mix is comics writer John Rozum, who created two cut paper collages that will be on display. The show opens Saturday, and continues throughout February.
