Daredevil and Batman Artist David Mazzuchelli Talks Storytelling

If you're going to learn at the feet of a comic creator...then David Mazzuchelli is a pretty good pair of feet to learn at.

FanFaire NYC is a pop culture art show in The Big Apple that works alongside the Art & Design Parent Teacher Association. Basically, its an annual event from the PTA with a focus on art. Back in February, students at FainFaire NYC went to the learning tree and sat at the feet of none other than renowned artist David Mazuchelli. 

If you're not familiar with Mazzuchelli by now then you should be ashamed of yourself. Not only is he the artist behind watershed works like Batman Year One (with Frank Miller) and Daredevil Born Again (also with Frank Miller), but he's also the master storyteller behind Asterios Polyp and City of Glass. 

Okay. My bad. instead of me shaming you into appreciating his work, how about you listen to him talk about visual storytelling (above) and then check out these amazing works by Mazuchelli and friends (below). All available at your local comic shop.

Winner of the 2010 Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album - New! Asterios Polyp's New York lifestyle goes up in flames. Trying to rebuild, he leaves the city and relocates to a small town in the American heartland. But what is this "escape" really about? The pieces of Polyp's life come together as past and present collide, and the mystery of Hana, the artist he loved, deepens. Mazzucchelli's extraordinarily imagined world of brilliantly conceived eccentrics becomes a masterpiece: a great American graphic novel.

IDW PUBLISHING
(W) Frank Miller (A/CA) David Mazzucchelli
Advance solicited for September release! David Mazzucchelli's Daredevil: Born Again was released in the much-lauded Artist's Edition format in 2012. It soon became the best-selling Artist's Edition of all-time and was universally acclaimed. In 2013 the book received the prestigious Eisner Award for "Best Archival Project-Comic Books", as well as a Harvey Award the same year. It soon sold out and has been the single most requested AE book to date for IDW to reissue.
So it is only fitting that IDW launch its new MARVEL series of ARTISAN EDITIONS with this award-winning classic! Just as the original release, David Mazzucchelli's Daredevil: Born Again Artisan Edition features the same scans-entirely from the original art-each painstakingly done by David Mazzucchelli himself to ensure the finest quality possible.
If ever a book deserved to be in this format it is Daredevil Born Again. Frank Miller, at the peak of his powers, crafted a story that remains-in an extraordinary career-one of his finest pieces of writing. And David Mazzucchelli does a stellar tour de force job as his collaborator, providing a nuanced and pitch-perfect turn as artist.
