Superman might have been born in Cleveland, but he moved to New York the first chance he got. Columbia University Libraries is hosting Comic New York, a symposium examining the city’s history of comics. Creators as diverse as golden-age artist Irwin Hasen, former DC publisher Paul Levitz, Marvel mainstays John Romita and John Romita Jr., and such alt-comics luminaries as R Sikoryak and Julia Wertz
expound on "New York, Real and Imagined," "Alternative New York," and other topics. Today's keynote discussion is between X-Men writer Chris Claremont and his longtime editor, Louise Simonson.
