Sounds and Pauses: The Comics of David Mazzucchelli
In celebration of the release of his highly anticipated book, Asterios Polyp, The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art is pleased to present David Mazzucchelli’s first retrospective exhibition in the U.S.
Mazzucchelli’s career encompasses early groundbreaking work in Daredevil and Batman: Year One; idiosyncratic short stories in his self-published anthology, Rubber Blanket, and elsewhere; the graphic novel adaption of City of Glass; and his new graphic novel. For over 25 years, Mazzucchelli has distinguished himself with articulate storytelling and emotive drawings in service to comics in a variety of genres. This show presents over 80 original comic pages, drawings, preparatory sketches and covers form the artist’s archives, allowing an invaluable loo at his artistic journey.
