New Narrative conference in Toronto - Fri., May 10th

Today, the 4th annual FREE one-day comics conference known as The New Narrative will be held on the campus of University of Toronto. Full details (including the schedule) may be found at

One of the paprs being presented is titled “’Maybe they’ve mixed me up with Joe Sacco?’: Reportage, Autobiography, and the (non-)Touristic Gaze in Guy Delisle’s Graphic Travelogues”. Both Joe Sacco and Guy Deslisle have had their comix travelogues published (though Sacco's work is always referred to as comic journalism). Both have also written and illustrated stories about Israel (Joe Sacco's Palestine and Guy Deslisle's Jerusalem).

The conference will be concluded with a keynote address by  Rutu Modan (author-illustrator of the graphic novel Exit Wounds and the newly-published graphic novel The Property).
