This Saturday! Graphic Novels 2.0 - Based on Real Events or People (Dec 17)
To repeat the huge enthusiasm we had last year when we discussed this topic, this is the second time "Graphic Novels" being nominated and selected by majority votes. This time, we are going to discuss stories that are based on real events or people.
What to Expect?We'll hear review on books like "Adolf", "Buddha" which both created by Osamu Tezuka, "Two Cents Plain: My Brooklyn Boyhood" created by Martin Lemelman, "The Beats: A Graphic History" created by Harvey Pekar, "Epileptic" created by David Beauchard, "Halo Ibu, Aku Kangen: Komik Kasih untuk Ibu (Hello Mother, I Miss You - Comic compilation for mothers)" created by six local writers/ edited by Muhammad Mice Misrad, and more (to be updated).
This is a FREE event, but we urge members to give donation (Rp 20,000 or more). Light snacks and drinks will be provided, but let us know if you want to bring anything. Coming early to the meetup is advisable because of limited capacity.
