Comics historian, illustrator and adman Arlen Schumer, a co-founder and partner of the Dynamic Duo Studio, is celebrating the rather golden Silver Age of comics (1956-1970) in a new book from Collectors Press, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art. Written and designed by Schumer, there's a $29.95 softcover edition as well as a $49.95 deluxe hardcover edition, with 16 additional pages. Seen here is Steve Ditko's Dr. Strange and the Ancient One doing a mind meld, from Strange Tales #137, October 1965.Schumer will also be doing some mind melding during a four-week lecture series on the Silver Age of comics, starting Nov. 4, at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York.
