“Superheroes and Thugs: The Comic Art of Bob Hall” now open

Opening panel for the new exhibit at the Nebraska History Museum

Batman, Spider-Man, the Hulk, and Thor. These superheroes have been brought to life through Nebraskan Bob Hall’s pen. He has also created memorable characters who stray from the superhero mold and would be better classified as “thugs.”  His comic book art has appeared in almost 300 volumes and he has produced work for major comic labels such as Marvel and DC, Valiant/Acclaim and other independent publishers over four decades.

A new exhibit, now open at the Nebraska History Museum, offers a glimpse into the world of superheroes and thugs that Hall has created.  Using artwork from the artist’s personal collection, and his own words, the exhibit offers a glimpse into the process of creating comic books and producing comic book art.

Comic book and original art from the Shadowman series which features Nebraska's own Carhenge.

The exhibit will run through August 4th, 2012. For directions to the museum and information about hours and other exhibits, please follow this link.
