K3 research seminar with Comics Hub: Processing death and grief in graphic novels

Processing death and grief in graphic novels 

with comics artist, Magnus Jonason, moderated by Gunnar Krantz

Wednesday, Nov 16m 14.15-16

(Note, the room is booked from 14.00, but the seminar starts 14.15)


Magnus Jonason’s autobiographical book Måste ringa brorsan (2022) deals with strong emotions like sorrow, grief and co-dependency. In contrast to many contemporary Swedish autobiographical comic artists, Jonason’s works in a realistic style and show meticulous attention to detail and setting. He originally started out as a comics artist, but has for the last decades worked with storyboards, for ad-agencys, as well as movies–  among them Tomas Alfredsson’s Låt den rätte komma in (2008) and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011). Jonason’s position between often compared art forms (comics and film) poses important questions of narrative similarities as well as differences between these. The seminar will begin with an introduction by Gunnar Krantz.
