Fanny Britt, Cecil Castellucci

Graphic novels which focus on serious topics have been mainstream for more than 30 years. These books have the ability to tell a story in ways that words alone can’t. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Today meet two graphic novelists who write—and draw—serious stuff for young readers. Cecil Castellucci gives us a train-hopping runaway in Depression-era United States, trying to distance herself from her abusive father. But girls have few options and Soupy disguises herself as a boy to make the break. Fanny Britt introduces us to Louis, a boy who shuttles between his alcoholic dad and his worried mom. ‘Comic’ books? Definitely not! This afternoon follow the lives of two young people making their way through difficult situations, frame by frame.
