A very interesting article by Jan Baetens - «Drawing Photo Novels» - has recently been published on the new issue of the journal ImageTexT.
"This article briefly introduces a collaborative project between Jan Baetens (text) and Johan De Moor (drawings) that offers a documentary presentation in comics form of the history and poetics of the photo novel. Scheduled to appear in Spring 2018, this book is part of a new series of didactic comics, BDTK/Bédéthèque, edited by David Vandermeulen with Éditions Le Lombard (the series aims at being a "Que sais-je" in comics format). In this article, the analysis will focus on issues of inter- and transmediality, while comparing this new collaborative work with previous examples of both comics and photo novels that blurred the boundaries between these two media."
