All of the material we talk about today is available online. It doesn’t take long to read, so take a moment to read it and then have a listen to what we think about it.
A quick correction: Giannis Milonogiannis was the artist on issues 27-31 of Prophet, so he wasn’t the first artist on the relaunch spearheaded by Brandon Graham. That honor goes to Simon Roy.
I mention Paris Soirees by Philippe Petit-Roulet and Francois Avril, as well as Shaun Tan’s The Arrival, both amazing examples of purely visual storytelling. Obviously you can talk about this being a much older form, as medieval tapestries or stained-glass windows work on a similar sort of principle.
