The villains of Gotham City have proved to be some of the most colorful and imaginative characters in superhero fiction, and now a New York art gallery is looking to enshrine the rogues on its walls.
One-Shot Gallery, located inside St. Marks Comics, is hosting an exhibit titled “Great Villains of Gotham: A Cowardly & Superstitious Lot,” which “aims to give these devils their due” in a stunning collection of fine art pieces by modern artists. The show includes James White’s “Starkade: Rogues,” above, in addition to work by HR-FM, Veronica Fish, Blake Wheeler and others. A surprising name in the mix is comics writer John Rozum, who created two cut paper collages that will be on display. The show opens Saturday, and continues throughout February.
