RE-IMAGINING THE CLASSICS

Festivals |
19th October 2013

Pioneering graphic novel publisher SelfMadeHero presents four of their leading writers and artists in conversation about their work adapting classics, from King Lear to The Picture of Dorian Gray. How does an artist capture the spirit of the original?

Can adaptations bring new readers to classic literature? How have the classics inspired modern comic art? Alex Fitch of Resonance will explore these issues with this illustrious panel.

I.N.J.Culbard (pic) has adapted many books for SelfMadeHero, including works by H. P. Lovecraft, Jane Austen and Arthur Conan Doyle. Rob Davis is the author of a graphic novelisation of Don Quixote, as well as the editor of the British Comic Award-winning anthology, Nelson. David Hine has adapted Victor Hugo's The Man Who Laughs (with Mark Stafford), the story that inspired Batman's adversary, the Joker. Ilya is the artist behind SelfMadeHero's Manga Shakespeare adaptation of King Lear.
