Run Time: 53:19

Jim Beard presented a visual tour of the origins of the graphic novel, from the first comic books of the early 1900s to the dawning of the graphic age in the 1970s and beyond. He discussed how many of the storytelling techniques of modern graphic novel masterpieces are rooted in the nascent days of the industry as you walk step by step through the years preceding the unique and creative medium as it exists today.

The presentation was held at the Toledo Museum of Art
