About this Event:

Graphic novels are in the news: two were shortlisted for the Costa Book awards. The evocative images of the nine circles of Hell in Dante’s 14th-century epic poem, Inferno, lend themselves perfectly to this approach. Brought to life by talented cartoonist Hunt Emerson, Dante’s Inferno includes comedy, satire and bad puns. It also has its serious side about one man’s imagined travel through Hell in an essay by author Kevin Jackson. This session takes a look at the increasing popularity of graphic novels or “commix” as Hunt prefers and at this book, which was described as ‘wildly clever and witty, but essentially reverent . . .  a wonderful treat for anyone who already loves Dante’.
