Sept. 12: Graphic Storytelling in Mill Valley

Comic books aren’t just for kids anymore. From Alan Moore’s Watchmen to Charles Burns’ Black Hole, it’s become clear that graphic novels can tell adult, emotionally charged stories with stunning visual expressions. No one knows that better than comic book writer, illustrator and lecturer Scott McCloud, who presents a talk titled Comics and the Art of Visual Communication. The author of non-fiction books like Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics, McCloud is a longtime leading voice for the evolution of comic books, and this weekend he shares his knowledge about the industry and stories about its importance in modern culture on Saturday, Sep 12, at Mill Valley Library, 375 Throckmorton Ave, Mill Valley. 7pm.
