Joe Sacco and Chris Ware (2013 event)

For the first time ever, two of the world's best graphic novelists, Joe Sacco and Chris Ware, appeared together on stage to discuss life as cartoonists. Sacco uses his art to capture the realities of global political upheaval; Ware creates understated fictions on suburbia. Both are united by the unique art form of graphic novels. In this event, recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival, they discuss the brilliance in bringing together word and image on the page with Teddy Jamieson.
