Considering we blocked out a recent Tuesday and devoted it entirely to the superheros edition of PBS' Pioneers of Television, we're not in any place to call Teague von Bohlen a nerd. This being stated, the descriptor's fairly fitting, given the novelist and UC Denver creative writing assistant professor will discuss comic book characters in an upcoming lecture.
During "Superheros in Narrative: Comics Come of Age in Print and Film," von Bohlen will outline how heroes like Superman and Wonder Woman have changed when presented in different media.
ASU's online literary mag, Superstition Review, presents the free talk on Wednesday, February 13, from 2 to 3 p.m. in Cooley Ballroom A at the Polytechnic campus.
Wed., Feb. 13, 2-3 p.m., 2013
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
