Anyone seen this? we are in LA this weekend and contemplating a visit. Terrible title, but looks like some great stuff.
Skirball Cultural Center - Exhibition | ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938–1950 (http://www.skirball.org/index.php?option=com_ccevents&scope=exbt&task=detail&oid=34)

No if you go let us know how it is. i was thinking about going but it sounded like a weird mix of educational stuff etc. the comic show a few years ago at the hammer and moca was really good except that you would expect to see the best examples of comics from that era and that had some beat up examples...i thought that was strange. the art itself was great it turned me on to the art of dick tracy, and charles shultz's skills were so good i didn't even see a drop of white out on his pages

The show was pretty cool, lots of cool original art and a nice display. My 16 month old son's favorite part was the coin operated Batmobile that played the TV theme song. Some of the exhibits had old merchandise, they could have used a few Megos. All in all a nice was to spend an hour.
