Kim Munson

Back when she was about six years old, Kim’s father bought her some Wonder Woman and Captain America comics as a lure to get her interested in figure drawing. She has loved comics ever since, and has a jam-packed storage unit to prove it. She is a writer, art historian, independent curator, and fine artist based in the San Francisco Bay area, living in a house that many of her friends laughingly refer to as a “library with action figures.” Since receiving her MA in art history, her writing has focused primarily on contemporary works on paper (including comic art), the movement of comic art into museums, art and the law, and graphics used by the labor movement, such as union labels. Kim has contributed to several academic books, and her articles have been included in the International Journal of Comic Art and other publications. For details about this material and about upcoming exhibitions, please see her website.
