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…
