Russ Kick, editor of The Graphic Canon, will be presenting at the Miami Book Fair on Sunday, November 18 at 2:30 pm.
The presentation, “Graphic Novels: Noah Van Sciver of The Hypo: A Graphic Portrait of the Melancholic Young Lincoln and Russ Kick on The Graphic Canon“, will be held at the Centre Gallery, Building 1. Russ will talk discuss the entire 3-volume series that makes up what Publisher’s Weekly calls “a must-have anthology for those who wish to lose themselves utterly in visual narrative adaptations of the works of the Western canon”.
The classic canon of Western civilization meets the artists and illustrators who have remade reading in the last years of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first century in Russ Kick’s magisterial, three-volume, full-color Graphic Canon. Visit The Graphic Cannon webpage to learn all about the project.
