While at the Morgantown Barnes 'n Noble the other night, I met Robert Tinnell, a writer of graphic novels. He was promoting his new book Feast of the Seven Fishes which was a collaboration with artists Ed Piskor and Alex Saviuk.
I told him about the module I was taking at SHU in January with Barry Lyga, which started a conversation about the future of graphic novels and how the WPF program at Seton Hill was taking a progressive step by exploring writing for media other than novels.
He had several of his books for sale, and I ended up with Feast, plus The Living and the Dead and The Black Forest. The last two are pretty dark, but well done.
