Third Annual Graphic Novel Panel: Finding Your Audience—Perspectives from the Artists

Last Date:

5015 Connecticut Ave NW
Politics & Prose

With plenty for the eye and mind of readers of all ages, the graphic novel is one of the most exciting genres around. Our third annual discussion of recent trends in graphic work focuses on books that have crossover appeal between adult and young adult audiences. This year’s discussion features innovative editors and artists, including moderator Mark Siegel, editorial director for First Second and author/illustrator of the fantastic, yet realistic, Sailor Twain (First Second); Farel Dalrymple, wielder of all manner of strangeness in The Wrenchies (First Second); Gareth Hinds, whose thought-provoking graphic retelling of Romeo and Juliet (Candlewick) follows his highly regarded Beowulf and The Odyssey; and Jim Rugg, whose Street Angel (Adhouse Books) uses artwork evocative of golden age comics to provide a cleverly satirical alternative to the traditional superhero narrative.
