Graphic Novel/Gaming Stage
The virtues of graphic biographies are now recognized. Having two visions of a famous person's life in one, that of the biographer and of the
artist, adds even more nuance and depth to a person's life story. It might also happen that we pick up a biography we wouldn't usually be interested in, thanks to the appealing art. A panel of award-winning graphic biographers will discuss and present their works.
With Gina Siciliano (I Know What I Am, Fantagraphics Books), Typex (Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol, SelfMadeHero) Gol (Cervantes: The Genius' Fantasy, Europe Comics).
