mccloudSCOTT McCLOUD IN CONVERSATION

5th MARCH 2015 at 6pm.   

ROOM G06/G07 ENGLISH FACULTY, 9 WEST ROAD

FREE ADMISSION; ALL WELCOME.

Scott McCloud, cartoonist and seminal theorist –  the ‘Aristotle of Comics’ –will discuss his new book The Sculptor with John Lennard.

‘the best graphic novel I’ve read in years. It’s about art and love and why we keep on trying. It will break your heart.’ Neil Gaiman

‘a wonderful testament to the power of comics’ The Independent

‘a brilliant and gripping book. As absorbing as a Victorian novel in terms of character and moral ideas, it somehow manages to be both an inquiry into the subjectivity of art and a zippy portrait of 21st-century hipster urban life. Plus, it’s a super classy homage to all things Marvel. Quite how McCloud pulls this off, I don’t know.’ The Guardian
