UPDATE: Here’s a review and photos of the Abel/Madden presentation at MoCCA, and a preview of tonight’s show.
Drawing Words and Writing Pictures is a course on comics creation, and class is in session as its two Brooklyn-based creators offer an interactive evening of presentation, sketching, and workshop instruction. Jessica Abel is the author of the short-fiction omnibus series Artbabe, the graphic novel La Perdida and a new slacker vampire comic, Life Sucks. Matt Madden is a comics creator and teacher at New York’s School of Visual Arts. He is the creator of the graphic novels Black Candy, Odds Off, and A Fine Mess, and of the comics theory book 99 Ways to Tell a Story. He is the co-editor (with Jessica Abel) of the Best American Comics series.
