Arthur Koestler’s “Memoirs of a Tightrope Walker”, from The God That Failed.

An adaptation of a portion of this 1950 essay runs throughout my new graphic novel, Angie Bongiolatti. Above is the seven page sequence that opens the book.

The MoCCA Festival is this weekend at The 69th Regiment Armory in New York, and I am going to be there.

It’ll be the official debut of my new graphic novel, Angie Bongiolatti, which I am very much looking forward to finally unloading on the general population. I’m also planning on printing up a small run of mini comics, collecting my The Comics Journal A Cartoonist’s Diary strips.

I will also be appearing on a panel, on Saturday at 1PM in Room One:

Comics and Protests Movements
Protest movements arise from Protest movements arise from communities marginalized by political institutions and mainstream media. Artwork has often given voice to underrepresented points of view, and can document grassroots social action overlooked by authorized histories. Comics artists Christopher Cardinale (Which Side Are You On?), Mike Dawson (Angie Bongiolatti), Seth Tobocman (War in the Neighborhood), and Sophie Yanow (War of Streets and Houses) have all represented and documented contemporary and historical protest movements in their comics. They will discuss the issues at stake with writer and documentary filmmaker Annie Nocenti.

Nervous about that one, (I was looking at Seth Tobocman’s War in the Neighborhood a bit as I was writing some scenes from Angie Bongiolatti) but it’s a good kind of nervous. Like, excited like.

Cartoonist’s Diary, Day Four

I am also a habitual “notes” checker.  And it’s not lost on me that most of my notes come from posting other people’s creative work.
