This page is dedicated to showcasing graphic journalism/non-fiction talents around the world, from the professional level to grass-roots. I might even add an FAQ when I get the chance. For now, content yourselves with the following resources – and feel free to suggest any that I might have missed. To be clear: this is for multi-page, long-form comics, not single panel editorial cartoonists (Daryl Cagle), serialised 3-panellers (Doonesbury) or even multi-panel/multi-tiered rabble rousers (Ted Rall, though to be fair he did just come back from Afghanistan where he was researching his follow-up to the decent “Silk Road to Ruin”). The idea is that the work is presented as a window into a subject that does more than scratch the surface of said news topic with incendiary rhetoric, but actually aims to inform (dare I say educate) the reader.
Here’s the livestreamed feed of the Graphic Journalism Panel I was on with Susie Cagle, Erin Polgreen and Wendy Macnaughton at the Online News Association conference at the end of last year:
This is very much a work in progress, so please leave any more suggestions as a comment or send me an email if you feel I’ve missed anything/one off.
