Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Veteran comic book authors Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon combine their love of journalism and comics in graphic novels, the latest of which is "Anne Frank: The Graphic Biography."

Jacobson is the creator of comics classics including "Richie Rich," "Hot Stuff," and "Casper the Friendly Ghost" while Colon has been a writer and inker for DC and Marvel Comics. The long-time collaborators have worked on other graphic novels, too, including a biography of Che Guevara and a graphic adaption of the 9/11 Report. The authors recently spoke to StackedUp.TV about their process for adapting Anne Frank's story into a graphic novel, and mused on the woman she would have become.
