Event Description

The author of a record-setting 17-year run on comic's most successful title in modern times, Chris Claremont has provided the fuel for a generation’s imagination with over 750 million copies sold, and movies, television programs, cartoons and video games based on his work. A pioneer in bringing empowered women to American comics, and introducing a more diverse and inclusive cast to his stories, Chris joins the Princeton community for a conversation moderated by his longtime friend, writer and former DC Comics Publisher Paul Levitz, who is teaching the fall 2016 semester course “Comics, Graphic Novels & the American Jew.”
