COMICS BRITANNIA RULE!:
THE 70S REVOLUTION


From Tammy to 2000AD:
Weirder, grittier, darker, British comics changed radically in the Seventies. Pat Mills talks with fellow writer Gerry Finley-Day, creator of the revolutionary Tammy, and then with artist Kevin O’Neill to set the records straight from Whizzer & Chips and Battle to Action’s censorship and the origins of 2000AD, 30 years strong this year. Chaired by Paul Gravett, co-author of Great British Comics.

Tickets: £6, £5 Concs, £4 Members
Where: Nash Room, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Sunday, November 4, 2007 - 5.30pm to 7.00pm
