Description

Two brilliant biographies in graphic novel form. Fionnuala Doran’s The Trial of Roger Casement charts the downfall of a man knighted in 1911 for humanitarian work, but condemned later as a revolutionary and a homosexual. Marcel Ruijters treats his graphic novel biography of Hieronymus Bosch in an entirely different manner. Since few facts remain about the medieval painter, Ruijters has created a work of fiction.
