Benton & Kushner’s event covered by The Rumpus

parsonsGregory Benton and Seth Kushner had a great time speaking at The sixty-sixth meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium (hosted by Ben Katchor.) last Monday night at Parsons. Gregory spoke about his process of making his new book, B+F and Seth gave a talk about the history of Fumetti/Photonovellas and on his own history of making Photocomix.

Keren Katz wrote up a thorough and compelling piece on the event for The Rumpus, complete with a plethora of images for the presentation. Highly recommended reading.

The New York Comics & Picture-Story Symposium is a weekly forum for discussing the tradition and future of text/image work. Open to the public, it meets Monday nights at 7-9pm EST in New York City. Presentations vary weekly and include everything from historical topics and technical demonstrations to creators presenting their work. Check out upcoming meetings here.
