Paco Roca in conversation with Felipe Rosete

Querétaro 2021, 

The graphic novel has become an established form of artistic expression, as much as literature itself, and the award-winning Spanish illustrator and cartoonist, Paco Roca, is one of the form’s most outstanding artists at the present time. His body of work includes around 30 graphic books, published in over ten countries. His most recent graphic novel, written together with the US expert on Spain, Robert Coale, is Los surcos del azar (2021), which looks at the role of Spain during the Second World War. It is told from the point of view of Miguel Ruiz, a Spanish republican in exile in France. He will talk about this extraordinary work with Felipe Rosete.
