    A fire story : a graphic memoir

In addition, 8,900 structures, including 6,200 homes, were destroyed. One of those homes belonged to author and illustrator Brian Fies and his family. In the days that followed, Fies hastily pulled together a firsthand account of his experience in a twenty-page online comic, entitled A Fire Story, that went viral… Less than a year after the fire, Brian Fies expanded his webcomic into a full-length graphic novel, including environmental insight and the stories of others affected by the disaster.”–Page [2] of cover.

  • GRAPHIC BIO SURTEES, SCLITZIE 2019
    Griffith, Bill
    Nobody’s fool : the life and times of Schlitzie the Pinhead
    Summary:“The story of Schlitzie’s long career–from Coney Island and the Ringling Bros. Circus to small town carnivals and big city sideshows–is one of legend. Today, Schlitzie is most well-known for his appearance in the cult classic Freaks (produced by MGM in 1932 and directed by Tod Browning), in which all of the sideshow performers were real, not actors. The making of Freaks and Schlitzie’s role in the film is a centerpiece of the book. This graphic novel biography is not exploitative, but instead humanizes Schlitzie by providing never-before revealed details of his life, offering a unique look into his world and restoring some dignity to his life and recognizing his contributions to popular culture”–Provided by publisher.
