Hoist the Jolly Roger, mates! Inquiry welcomes back author and historian ERIC JAY DOLIN to talk about his new book BLACK FLAGS, BLUE WATERS: THE EPIC HISTORY OF AMERICA’S MOST NOTORIOUS PIRATES.
NANCY, the newspaper comic strip drawn and written by Ernie Bushmiller, was a deceptively simple gag cartoon. You read it, got the joke in a heartbeat, and moved on. But it took a lot of work to create that perfect visual gag. Tonight we talk with PAUL KARASIK and MARK NEWGARDEN, both award-winning cartoonists who have lectured and taught comics internationally. Their new book analyzes a single three panel Nancy strip from forty-four perspectives to reveal the essentials of what makes a successful comic. Their book is HOW TO READ NANCY: THE ELEMENTS OF COMICS IN THREE EASY PANELS.
