Two graphic novelists use their art to illuminate some of the most complex and timely problems of modern society. The author of the highly-acclaimed Psychiatric Tales and Science Tales, Darryl Cunningham takes us to the heart of free-market politics and the financial crisis with his brilliant forthcoming book Supercrash: How to Hijack the Global Economy. Jon Ronson said of Cunningham, ‘it takes other authors whole books to say what Darryl can say in a single illustration.’ Ian Williams holds the distinction of working both as a GP and a graphic novelist and founded the website GraphicMedicine.org. His funny and eloquent graphic novel, The Bad Doctor, is a wry account of life behind the scenes at a medical practice, from the humdrum to the tragic. Stitches author David Small described it as ‘skillfully told, relentlessly honest, often funny and painfully true.’
