Noah Van Sciver's Lincoln Lesson #5
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Noah Van Sciver 8 Aug 2012 11:44 AM

 Jen's Favorite panel from the Hypo

A near duel is what let Denver cartoonist Noah Van Sciver to the trail of a book that eventually became the graphic novel, The Hypo. This week Van Sciver writes about his creative process and findings at Forbidden Planet.

Van Sciver writes,"Most books I would find on the bookstore shelves flew through Lincoln’s bachelor years on their way to the Civil War. I gathered as much as I could from the first few chapters of as many books as I could find, but most told the same anecdotes over and over again offering me only slightly different wording. The book that fixed that problem for me was 'Lincoln’s Melancholy' by Joshua Wolf Shenk."
