Art Spiegelman - “What the %@&*! Happened to Comics?”
May 9, 2014
Art Spiegelman's comics are best known for their scratch-board, illustrative style and controversial content. In his talk “What the %@&*! Happened to Comics?” he takes his audience on a chronological tour of the evolution of comics, all the while explaining the value of this medium and why it should not be ignored.
"… comics echo the way the brain works. People think in iconographic images, not in holograms, and people think in bursts of language, not in paragraphs."
“Spiegelman has become one of The New Yorker’s most sensational artists …”
