On Tuesday, November 24th, the 12th grade Honors College, in conjunction with the MTA Comic Book Club, went on a partial day trip to The New York Historical Society to see the exhibit “Superheroes in Gotham.”

This exhibit focused on “New York born” superheroes and their effect on popular culture and politics. From Superman comics in the late 30’s to Iron Man comics in the late 60’s, the exhibit and accompanying tour provided an inside study in the effects comic books have on culture and ideals. With an allotted time to properly analyze the exhibit and dabble in comic drawing ourselves, this exhibit was highly informative and extremely interactive, playing to all interests.
