GREAT BRITISH COMICS:
RIPPING YARNS & WIZARD WHEEZES


Comic Anarchy rules in the UK, from Victorian reprobates to Millennium rebels, and is celebrated by Comica director Paul Gravett and Peter Stanbury, co-authors of Great British Comics, launched here. Accompanied by images of rare original art, archive photos and film clips, their discussion demonstrates how comics have been a part of our daily life and national psyche, and still are today in graphic novels, small presses and webcomix.

Where: Nash Room, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Saturday, October 28, 2006 - 2pm
