The graphic novel may be an important part of popular culture today, given the same weight and gravitas as literary fiction or film, but it wasn’t always that way. On Friday 11 November, Art Spiegelmen, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece ‘Maus’ and saxophonist Philip Johnston bring Wordless! to the Barbican - their show that takes you through the history of the graphic novel. Discussing how their collaboration came about, and enthusing about their love for Jazz and comics, we chat to Spiegelman and Johnston about Wordless in the latest edition of our Contemporary Music podcast.
