MFA in Comics

Event description

Emil Ferris is an American writer, cartoonist, and designer. Ferris debuted in publishing with her 2017 graphic novel My Favorite Thing Is Monsters. The novel tells a coming-of-age story of Karen Reyes, a girl growing in 1960s Chicago, and is written and drawn in the form of the character's notebook. The graphic novel was praised as a "masterpiece" and one of the best comics by a new author and earned Ferris an Eisner Award for Best Writer/Artist.

In celebration CCA’s MFA in Comics annual summer session, California College of the Arts hosts its ninth annual Comics in the City guest speaker series featuring Eunsoo Jeong (Koreangry), Akira Himekawa (The Legend of Zelda), Marguerite Abouet (Aya), Emil Ferris (My Favorite Thing Is Monsters), and Alison Bechdel (Fun Home).
