Between 1935 and 1943 the government-funded Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) sought to keep artists throughout the country working by creating projects that would benefit the public. In Rochester, the Memorial Art Gallery’s director, Gertrude Herdle Moore, administered the WPA art program, while Isabel Herdle, her sister and the Gallery’s curator, was on the program’s committee. In 1937, Rochester’s WPA art project was called “the most interesting and effective outside of New York City” by the regional director of the Federal Art Project.

Unfortunately, many no longer apply in the current market and environment. But our research revealed some exceptional companies that go against the common wisdom and outperform their competitors in a big way.” That piqued his interest and he sought others who shared that understanding.

Crime comic books in the 1950s caused controversy leading to their suppression and near extinction. Twenty-five years later, the dark hero, femme fatale, and bleak outlook of crime story comic books are even more striking and subversive. Terrence Wandtke traces the history of crime comics from their beginnings to the current resurgence and analyzes the cultural forces that give rise to influential works like Frank Miller’s Sin City, Brian Azzarello’s 100 Bullets, and Ed Brubaker’s Criminal.
