Scott McCloud visits the British Library to discuss The Sculptor, his first graphic novel for nearly 10 years

Since the release of his classic graphic novel Understanding Comics, Scott McCloud has been recognised as the West’s leading authority on the power of comics and visual communication. Sin City writer Frank Miller has called him “just about the smartest guy in comics”, and his non-fiction graphic novels have been celebrated by Alan Moore, Art Spiegelman and many more.

Scott McCloud visits the British Library to talk about his first full-length fictional graphic novel, The Sculptor. Neil Gaiman has said of McCloud’s long-awaited magnum opus, “The Sculptor is the best graphic novel I’ve read in years. It’s about art and love and why we keep on trying. It will break your heart.”

McCloud wrote the definitive guide to how comics work; join him at the library to learn how his understanding of the craft was put to use in the creation of this breathtaking, funny and unforgettable piece of fiction. Scott McCloud’s presentation will be followed by Q&A.

This event is co-hosted by COMICA and SelfMadeHero
