About The Infinite Universe of Jim Starlin
The Cartoon Art Museum presents The Infinite Universe of Jim Starlin, an exhibition celebrating the art and innovation of Jim Starlin. His acclaimed 1970s tenure as the writer and artist of the Marvel Comics series Captain Marvel and Warlock redefined the word “cosmic” and pushed the boundaries of mainstream superhero comics to their limits—and beyond.
Starlin’s signature creation, Thanos, is the featured villain in Marvel Studios’ forthcoming feature film Avengers: Infinity War, which draws inspiration from many of Starlin’s Marvel Comics stories, including Captain Marvel, Warlock, Silver Surfer, and The Infinity Gauntlet. The Cartoon Art Museum’s retrospective celebrates the art and the artist behind these cosmic masterworks with a showcase of his Marvel Comics creations.
