Talk & Readings

From Tintin to Asterix, the love of comics unites both sides of the Channel! The genre has also become a prized method to convey the lives of great historical figures from Sigmund Freud to Rosa Luxemburg or Emil Zatopek. Illustrators and artists Kate Evans, Lionel Richerand and Jan Novak join comics veteran Paul Gravett to examine what makes "biographics" so popular and what more can they offer in the exploration of the lives of history’s greats.
