"Underground Heroes" at the New York Transit Museum

  • New York Transit Museum 99 Schermerhorn St Brooklyn, NY USA (map)

On View at the New York Transit Museum through March 17

Peter’s work is featured among a wide cast of New York subway-inspired cartoonists, including Winsor McCay, Will Eisner, Bill Griffith, Roz Chast, Ronald Wimberly and Julia Wertz.

“New York’s rich visual vernacular is a colorful setting for illustrated stories, so it comes as no surprise that our iconic transportation system plays a starring role in comics and graphic novels. Drawing on satirical cartoons, comic strips and comic books from the 19th through the 21st centuries, Underground Heroes: New York Transit in Comics is a raucous ride through New York’s transit system from a range of visual storytellers.”
