Science Fiction

With forerunners in nineteenth-century literature and fiction, science fiction stories about new inventions and technologies, aliens, space travel, and much more have been captivating audiences for hundreds of years. This broad genre particularly lends itself to visual expression, which heightens dramatic tales of new worlds with artfully rendered machines, landscapes, and creatures populating the pages of magazines and comics, as well as in film. Items in the Stephen A. Geppi Collection reflect the rich history and variety of science fiction with examples ranging from early-twentieth-century magazines to long running comic book series.
