New York City: How To Read Nancy – The Elements of Comics in Three Easy Panels by Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden
December 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden will introduce their new work, a unique meditation on the elements of comics as seen through the molecular deconstruction of the August 8, 1959 daily episode of Ernie Bushmiller’s Nancy. Columbia University comics librarian Karen Green, will chat with Mark and Paul about the genesis of this decade-long project and the author’s quest to isolate the blood, sweat and tears that go into the making of a single comic strip.
How To Read Nancy is part encyclopedia, part history, part biography, part treatise, part humor theory, and part how-to-be-a-cartoonist-in-43-easy-lessons-sorry-folks-no-refunds!
A book singing and reception will follow the presentation.
