Truthiness is Stranger Than Fiction: New Reality-Based Graphic Novels
Saturday October 10 | 6:45PM – 7:45PM | Room: 1A05
Sometimes comics can be the best medium to communicate about the real world — whether through science, autobiography, or wild adventures rooted in real experience. But working with “the truth” brings its own set of challenges… This fall, four of the industry’s hottest graphic novels are rooted in the real world. Now’s your chance to crack them open and see how & why. Featuring: Maris Wicks (the goofy and educational anatomy tour Human Body Theater), Derf Backderf (the raucous, stomach-churching garbageman tale Trashed), Jennifer Hayden (the riveting, funny, and wise cancer memoir The Story of My Tits), and Troy Little (the manic graphic novel adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).
