Date created :
Best known for his work on the iconic "X-Men" series, legendary comic book writer and novelist Chris Claremont is credited with turning the Marvel mutants from struggling underachievers into bestselling comic book gold. He talks to Richelle Harrison Plesse about seeing those characters go from the strip to the screen in the subsequent X-Men and Wolverine blockbuster franchises.
Currently in France for the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Chris's work is also featured in a new exhibition at the Paris Holocaust Museum. "Shoah and Comic Strips" explores how the ninth art has captured the horrors of the Nazi atrocities.
