Comica Conversation: Craig Thompson & Marcel Theroux


The American graphic novelist Craig Thompson is in London to promote Habibi, one of the most acclaimed graphic novels of 2011, seven years in the making and published in Britain by Faber & Faber. Craig has kindly agreed to do one ‘live’ exclusive speaking engagement for Comica Festival, giving an illustrated talk and presentation about the ‘making of’ this remarkable book, giving rare insights into his research and process. After this, Craig will give an in-depth interview about Habibi and his other graphic novels, including the much-loved autobiographical story Blankets, to Marcel Theroux, the novelist and broadcaster who reviewed Habibi on BBC2’s The Review Show. The evening concludes with a Q&A session with the audience followed by a book signing and sketching session, organised in association with Gosh! Comics.

Tickets: £8.00 from We Got Tickets
Where: St Albans Centre, Baldwins Gardens, London EC1N 7AB
