GRAPHIC NOVELS WITH BRYAN AND MARY TALBOT

Come and hear collaborative writers, Costa award-winners Bryan and Mary Talbot, demonstrate the power of the graphic novel to communicate complex material in an accessible way. Emotionally charged biographical details, tangled historical events or the contemporary challenges of climate change – whatever the subject, the graphic novel’s unique combination of word and image can render it compelling. This will be an illustrated talk in the fabulous setting of Tate Liverpool.
Bryan Talbot has written and drawn comics and graphic novels for over 40 years, including Judge Dredd, Batman, Sandman, The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, The Tale of One Bad Rat, Alice in Sunderland, Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes and his current detective thriller series, Grandville. He is published in over twenty countries, is a frequent guest at international comic festivals, and has been awarded an honorary Doctorate in Arts and an honorary Doctorate in Letters.
Dr Mary Talbot is an internationally acclaimed scholar of gender, language and power who now writes graphic novels. Her first, Dotter of her Father's Eyes (with Bryan Talbot), won the Costa Biography Award in 2013. Her second, Sally Heathcote, Suffragette (with Kate Charlesworth and Bryan Talbot), came out in May 2014. Her third, The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia (with Bryan Talbot) appeared in May 2016.
