Episode 2 – Storylines
Andrew Graham-Dixon examines the variety of ways in which drawing has been used throughout the centuries to tell narrative stories, many of them dark or satirical, from animation to Japanese manga books. Political cartoonist Martin Rowson explains how his savage commentaries on contemporary politicians are influenced by 19th century masters Hogarth and Gillray, and in a rare interview the American comic strip artist Daniel Clowes talks about what inspired his celebrated graphic novel Ghost World. Also covered is Manga artist Misako Rocks!, Hollywood storyboard artist, J. Todd Anderson, early animator, Winsor McCay and French animator Sylvain Chomet.

“Anders Nilsen – Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow, Big Questions, Rage of Poseidon—is surely one of the finest cartoonists of the last decade. Big Questions won lots of awards and helped further the cause of the graphic novel’s literary worth when it came out in 2011. The fold-out book Poseidon is an object d’art in addition to being a multi-leveled parable of humanity and divinity.” (Read more at comicsbeat.com )

His stories, appearing in alternative comics such as Raw since the early 1980s, take comic book clichés — wiseacre kids, sinister scientists and tough-as-nails detectives — and rearrange them into disturbing yet funny patterns. Beneath this interplay of familiar iconography lurks the real traumas of childhood, traumas of loss and alienation.”  (Read more on The Comics Journal)[/vc_column_text][grve_media_box media_type=”image-video-popup” video_link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwL6TwdVXFQ” map_lat=”51.516221″ map_lng=”-0.136986″ map_zoom=”14″ map_height=”280″ align=”left” animation_delay=”200″ image=”6338″ title_link=”||”][/grve_media_box][vc_column_text animation_delay=”200″ css=”.vc_custom_1433358802745{margin-top: -28px !important;}”]
