'The Golden Age of Comic Books'

Editor & Publisher notes that Jerry Robinson, president of CartoonArts International, is curating an exhibit called "The Golden Age of Comic Books: 1938-1950," which runs through next August at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta.

Robinson began working for Bob Kane in 1939, and is credited with creating the Joker (although that's sometimes disputed).

The museum also is developing an exhibit titled "Curious George: Monkeyshines and Mischief," which will focus on the lives of H.A. and Margaret Rey, and their classic children's book creation.
