 Gipi

Italian comics creator Gipi has emerged as a world-class artist and writer. He teaches in fine arts academies, directs short films, illustrates for the popular newspaper La Repubblica, and proves time and time again that he is a virtuoso of the graphic novel. His work is exhibited in museums and has won him countless honors. He has received major awards at the Lucca and Naples comics festivals, and in 2006 The Innocents earned him an Eisner Award nomination. His Notes for a War Story (upcoming from First Second) won the 2005 Goscinny Prize for Best Script and was proclaimed Best Book at Angoulême the following year. This extraordinary voice now rings out with five graphic songs in Garage Band.
