Graphic Novels That Make History

October 06, 2018, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Room 1C03 – Javits Center

Nonfiction graphic novels are more popular than ever -- from Persepolis to March they have been recognized as an important medium in the pop culture landscape. But what does the future of the genre look like, and what stories still need to be told? Panelists Peter Tomasi (The Bridge), Nathan Hale (Lafayette!) Ted Fox and James Otis Smith (Showtime at the Apollo), Mikaël (Giant), and Matt Fitch and Chris Baker (Apollo) will discuss what important historical figures, events, and movements they are eager to share with their audiences, and why. They will also discuss upcoming projects and what they think is next is the world of nonfiction graphic novels. Moderated by Abraham Riesman, staff writer at New York Magazine.
