Fingeroth to Speak About Graphic Novels
Danny Fingeroth, best known today as editor of Write Now!, will be speaking on the topic of graphic novels at the Court street Barnes & Noble in Brooklyn on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.
Known for his superhero work, Fingeroth may seem like an unorthodox choice to write a guide to non-superhero, "literary" graphic novels such as Maus, Fun Home, etc. But that, he says, is the point. The world of the literary GN is unknown territory to many followers of superheroes. As a result he wrote the Rough Guide to Graphic Novels, published recently by PenguinPutnam.
This is far from Fingeroth’s first boo, having previously authored Superman on the Couch and Disguised as Clark Kent. Fingeroth was also previously Spider-Man Group Editor and a Marvel Comics writer.
In his Barnes & Noble presentation, Fingeroth will discuss the world of graphic novels and present his sure-to-be controversial favorites. Q & A and signing will follow, and perhaps a surprise or two will be in store.
