Arts preview: Glen Weldon

Jim Fischer

Author, critic and NPR pop-culture panelist Glen Weldon has a new superhero-themed book out and is coming to Columbus to talk about it. Thurber House will welcome Weldon to the Columbus Museum of Art to discuss his "The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture."

Delivered with his trademark wit, "Caped Crusade" documents Batman's cultural significance through generations of comics fans and beyond.

You may recall Weldon's "Superman: The Unauthorized Biography."
