Eddie Campbell:
The Years Have Pants



Over from Australia, Eddie Campbell will be in conversation with Scottish pioneer of stand-up comedy Arnold Brown and signing books afterwards, in particular his new 640-page compilation Alec: The Years Have Pants (Top Shelf), collecting the whole saga, including the early episodes first serialised in Escape Magazine and three Escape graphic novels. More…

“Alec is magic, and even if I knew how all of it was done I’d be doing you a disservice if I pointed out the wires and mirrors… It is written by someone who obviously finds being alive an endless source of novelty and conundrum.” - Alan Moore

“Do you need me to tell you how good Eddie Campbell is? Or that Alec is probably the best book-length comic about art and wine and midlife crises and families and friends and wine and love and art and saying goodbye and terror there is?” - Neil Gaiman

Tickets: £6 / £5 Concessions / £4 ICA Members
Where: Nash Room, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Saturday, November 7, 2009 - 7pm to 9pm
