Readings in the shed Chapter XV – Be Graphic! ventures into the epic form of Graphic Novels (BAM!)
Be Graphic –
A Graphic story works on the premise of ‘less is more’. The characters are allowed to speak only that which fits in bubbles and the narrative is boxed in little squares. Stacks of these bubble- filled boxes tell the story.
In its Chapter XV Readings in the Shed brings to its audience a form of storytelling that is often brushed off as superficial. Nothing could be further from the truth. In a world that prides itself on thinking outside the box, the graphic storyteller has no option but to do it from within.
