The Cartoonist in Comics: Using Autobiography in Graphic Novels
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)

These four cartoonists more than put themselves into their art, but become their cartooning, directly reflecting their lives and personalities in their work.

Geek Week 2013 gets an injection of semi-autobiographical cartoonists Dean Haspiel, Bob Fingerman, Laura Lee Gulledge, and Ethan Young for a panel moderated by Christopher Irving, where they’ll get to the core of why they put themselves into their stories. The panel kicks off with quick readings of their work, and an informal round table talk about the ins and outs of semi-autobio cartooning.
