"A panel of leading authors and expert celebrity guests join Jennifer Bryne for investigations into some of the most popular reading genres, they reveal the conventions, controversies, and titles that have helped shaped the literary landscape. Jennifer Byrne presents a special on graphic novels or comics if you would prefer. That vibrant combination of words and images which in recent years have told stories ranging from the Nazi Holocaust in the case of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus, to the hunt for Jack the Ripper in From Hell, to a version of The Great Gatsby in which the title character appears as a handsome seahorse and his lover Daisy, a dandelion. These last two novels come from the pens of panellists featured in this special so let's meet Jennifer's four guests. Writer and illustrator Nicki Greenberg who has produced the graphic novel interpretations of The Great Gatsby and Hamlet. Bruce Mutard's first novel, The Bunker, was published in the US a few years ago, and last year saw the publication of The Sacrifice, an historical novel set in Melbourne on the eve of WWII. Eddie Campbell is famous in his field, as an artist, writer, innovator and collaborator - with Alan Moore on their epic Ripper study From Hell - through to his often painfully intimate autobiographical works, The Fate of The Artist and Alec. And finally Sophie Cunningham who is a novelist, publisher and the editor of the literary journal Meanjin."--ABC-TV website.
