PANELS IN FRAMES
Moving a comic collection can be backbreaking, but after picking up stakes in July, the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art is already displaying selected treasures in its new space in the Society of Illustrators building. The compact gallery and the breadth of MOCCA’s collection inspire odd juxtapositions, such as a wartime
Peter Arno cartoon side-by-side with a Paolo Rivera painting of Ghost Rider. Original strips by masters like Milton Caniff and Walt Kelly hang near newer work from R. Sikoryak and oh-so-meta Kaz. And museum cards reveal lost secrets, like what Beetle Bailey did before joining the Army.
