The most difficult task for an artist tasked with drawing a biography of a famous figure is how to reduce an enormous amount of text and information into a relatively small number of images. Making those images interesting beyond simply conveying that information for narrative purposes is even more difficult. Critic Robin Enrico (Broken Frontier) will moderate a group of cartoonists who have deftly navigated these problems to create some memorable comics: Typex (Andy: The Life And Times Of Andy Warhol), Beth Barnett (Dreamers Of The Day), and Peter & Maria Hoey (Coin-Op Comics).
