New York: How to Read Nancy Lecture at The New School

November 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST

Cartoonists and scholars Paul Karasik and Mark Newgarden use a single three-panel Nancy strip to explain how the medium of comics works. Everything that you need to know about reading, making, and understanding comics can be found in a single Nancy strip by Ernie Bushmiller from August 8, 1959. Mark Newgarden and Paul Karasik’s groundbreaking work How to Read Nancy (Fantagraphics Books, 2017) ingeniously isolates the separate building blocks of the language of comics through the deconstruction of a single strip.

Paul and Mark will be discussing How to Read Nancy as part of the New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 from 7 to 9pm.
