Howl: The Graphic Novel



September 24th sees the release of the much awaited movie, Howl, directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. The movie features a long animated sequence in which Eric Drooker brings Ginbserg’s poem to life, stanza by stanza.
Drooker was chosen because of his experience in animating Ginsberg’s work. In 1996 he illustrated Illuminated Poems.
