Two Photo Books Of Comic Creators On Two Different Continents

 

 

In the American corner, Leaping Tall Buildings by Seth Kushner and Christopher Irving, a series of photographs and short essays profiling some of the greatest classic and modern comic book talents from Jeffrey Brown to Stan Lee to Grant Morrison to Chris Claremont. It launches in early May.

And in the British corner, Portraits by Joel Meadows, black and white shots of the likes of Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Mike Carey, Pete Hogan and Guillemoro Del Toro. It launches at Gosh Comics in London on March 10th.

Here’s a look at examples from both. There’s not a lot of crossover.
