Featuring an extraordinary selection of original Batman-inspired illustrations assembled from the art collection of Designer/Writer Chip Kidd. For the first time ever, the Society of Illustrators NYC, in support of The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, is proud to display this collection in their special MoCCA Gallery.
In 2013, DC Comics released a brand-new six-issue revival of the legendary Batman: Black and White series. Based on the hugely-popular 1996 publication, each issue of Batman: Black and White features several short-stories written and drawn by top comic writers and artists. In the first Issue, released on September 4th of 2013, Chip Kidd’s short-story titled “Don’t Know Where, Don’t Know When” (artwork by Michael Cho) was featured, and the issue also included a blank variant cover. This blank cover overlap allowed fans to seek out original sketches by their favorite artists, and became a popular collectible.
Since the release of this Issue, Chip Kidd has amassed a diverse collection of covers. This show will include approx. 88 pieces of original art all inspired by the Bat-Man!
Here’s the list of Artists:
Vanessa Del Rey
Michael T. Gilbert
J. G. Jones
Olivia (De Berardinis)
Ellwood H. Smith
A lecture featuring Chip Kidd and special guests is planned for Tuesday, September 29th but that date could change. More information coming soon so please stay tuned. But you will not want to miss the Opening Reception which will be on October 7th.
