It’s the story of an artist–or maybe several. Join this roundtable discussion of cartoonists as they talk about the art of autobiographical comics. Topics will include getting your life onto the page, the poetic interpretation of said life, and the reality of self-censorship in order to maintain real-life relationships and sanity.
