A COMICA REVIEW BY:

THE ROUGH GUIDE TO GRAPHIC NOVELS


Danny Fingeroth is an American comic book writer and editor. He currently edits Write Now!, a magazine about the craft of writing, for TwoMorrows Publishing. The following review appeared in his latest book is The Rough Guide to Graphic Novels, which looks at the medium's history, details sixty "must-read" graphic novels, profiles the movement's legends and more.

Held annually since 2003 at the ultra-hip Institute of Contemporary Arts, this festival (weighted heavily in favour of indie comics, graphic novels and manga) features several events including 24 Hour Comic Day, films, lectures, exhibits and a small press fair. The size and scope of the festival has grown from ten days in the summer to a packed calendar of events starting in October, with several one-off events and exhibitions throughout the year. The epitome of geekchic, it’s most definitely worth checking out.
