Jean Van Hamme:
Largo Winch


Jean Van Hamme is the hugely popular, superstar scriptwriter of a string of hit Belgian bandes dessinées series, including: the heroic fantasy saga Thorgal, high-finance thriller Largo Winch, amnesiac mystery XIII, enigmatic secret agent Lady S. and brand-new exploits of thoroughly British partnership Blake & Mortimer. Now Van Hamme makes his first major UK appearance at last on May 5th at a special Comica Event, in conversation after an exclusive big-screen showing of the 2008 lavish, live-action, English-language movie adaptation of Largo Winch. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet this major author of mainstream French-language comics. More details…

Earlier on the evening of May 5th, from 5.30pm to 7pm, Van Hamme will also be signing his books at The French Bookshop in Bute Street, South Kensington.
