Superman to Asterix: Comics tell immigrant story
A painter works during the preparation of an exhibition on Comics and Immigration at the Museum of the History of Immigration in Paris, Monday Oct. 14, 2013. The exhibition takes place from Oct. 16 to April 27, 2014. Visible at right are two figures by French comics artist Herve Barulea, also called Baru. Tracing comic sketches and magazines from 1913 to the present day from the U.S. to France, the exhibit shows how the immigrant story -from Asterix's "foreign" Polish and Italian authors, to Superman's Eastern European creator- hugely shaped comic books, from their characters to their storylines.(AP Photo/Remy de la Mauviniere)
