This month’s featured author is British-American cartoonist Gabrielle Bell (1976 – ). Born in Britain she moved to the US at the age of two and grew up in an isolated area in Mendocino County, California. She is most well known for her autobiographical and semi-autobiographical work, especially her Lucky series. Check out her homepage here. The medium of comics and autobiographical comics have been growing in the United States and Europe since the nineties. Gabrielle Bell is a good representative of this interesting cultural movement with her a bit low key and well-drawn work. We have some of her comics in the campus library so come in and have a look!
