Making History Graphic

Joe Sacco and Gene Luen Yang
In conversation with Charles Hatfield, author and associate professor of English, CSUN

Hailed as the creator of war reportage comics, Joe Sacco uses darkly funny short form comics to recount conflicts, including his latest book The Great War, an illustrated panorama of the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Gene Luen Yang, author of the acclaimed graphic novel American Born Chinese, explores the duplicity of protagonists during China’s Boxer Rebellion in his new work, Boxers and Saints. Join these two daring writers for a conversation on how the graphic novel and graphic non fiction —rising from the frontlines of popular culture—can serve our understanding of history.
