Stripped: Comics and Graphic Novels Laid Bare


Stripped logo


Stripped is a celebration of comics, graphic novels and the people who create them and it was a key part of the 2013 Book Festival.

Through forty amazing events the world’s leading writers and artists revealed fascinating insights into this inspiring and witty literary form and showed us how graphic novels and comics can bring explosive new ideas to reading and storytelling.  

From James Kakalios discussing the science behind superhero stories to legendary Scottish comics writer Grant Morrison telling tales from his extraordinary career the Stripped programme explored the rich heritage of comics alongside the contemporary renaissance of graphic novels, while the Stripped Mini Comic Fair showcased some of the best independent comics producers in Scotland.
