Comics Exhibition Carries a Wallop

Columbia has surprising, even eye-popping, connections to comic book superheroes. This and much else are evident in a show at the Rare Book & Manuscript Library called “Comics at Columbia: Past, Present, Future,” running through January 23, which shines a spotlight on Columbia’s acquisition of cartoonists’ archives, illustrations, manuscripts and comics. It features items ranging from recent graphic novels to a cartoon penned in 1766, when Columbia was still King’s College.
