Joe Sacco & Chris Ware (2013 event)

For the first time two of the world’s best graphic novelists, Joe Sacco and Chris Ware, appeared together on stage to discuss life as a 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 artform of graphic novels. In this event, chaired by Teddy Jamieson, they talk about the brilliance in bringing together word and image on the page. Recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
