This coming weekend (24-26 August) Edinburgh International Book Festival hosts a feast of graphic novel and comics authors in its new Stripped strand. We've picked a handful of events that look particularly great, and given the form we decided, what better way to represent them than in pictures? Our main image is from Will Morris's evocative fishing tale The Silver Darlings - Morris's event is linked in the first panel below.
