MISFIT LIT


Nearly 20 years since the breakthrough of Art Spiegelman’s Maus, who are the next wave of emerging international graphic novelists? From V for Vendetta to MirrorMask, can the individualist visions of comics creators survive the Hollywood machine from page to screen? Tonight’s stellar panel includes: from the US Jessica Abel (Artbabe and La Perdida, a semi-autobiographical thriller set in Mexico City); Matt Madden with 99 Ways To Tell A Story, a wild comics homage to Perec’s Exercises in Style; Italy’s Igort, whose lyrical fumetti 5 Is The Perfect Number reinvents the neo-realist mafioso tragedy; Paul Wright, Times cartoonist (whose eccentrically English debut is Smelling A Rat); Killoffer, the French Tarantino of autobiographical comics; and Japan’s mistress of creepy cuteness and fractured fairytales, Junko Mizuno. Chair: Paul Gravett, Comica founder.

Where: ICA, The Mall, London
When: Wednesday, October 26, 2005
