Leaping Tall Buildings gives a historical survey of the comic book medium through photographer Seth Kushner’s unique portraits and Irving’s interview-based essays. The pair are celebrating the book’s release through this benefit panel at Housing Works. “Through their revolutionary work on both Batman and Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Adams and O’Neil literally redefined the superhero, pushing the genre into wider social acceptance and more mature themes,” Irving, who is also a Housing Works member, says. “When you think of what they each did on their own, and then look at their combined efforts, it’s mind-blowing. Getting to moderate the two of them together is beyond an honor for me—it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.” (via Graphic Novel and Comic Book Creators in New York City - Graphic NYC)
