Literary Graphic Novels
Graphic novels thrive on reinvention. Their artists and writers endlessly surprise readers with ingenious and unexpected reinterpretations. The characters morph over time, acquiring different, fascinating nuances and taking on ever-deepening cultural significance. Publishing powerhouse DC Comics - and their stalwarts such as The Joker, Batman and Superman - have never been more popular. Here to talk about the launch of their new Rebirth series, which enriches the backstories of many of the DC pantheon, is none other than writer and DC Comics Co-Publisher, Dan DiDio.
