Call it autobio, memoir, or autofiction, personal narratives have become one of the most important genres in comics and graphic novels. The creators on this panel have published three of the most powerful, probing and honest entries in this genre during the past year, demonstrating the range of the form in these examples alone.  How do creators shape lived experience – including trauma, illness and other important passages – into involving graphic narratives? What personal and creative issues have they dealt with in the process?
