GREAT BRITISH COMICS
PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE



How do the comics of our childhoods stand up to today? Boyfriend, Eagle, Battle, Rick Random and more are being reappreciated thanks to a wave of compilations, artbooks and studies.

In the first half of this event Steve Holland, David Leach and David Roach examine the creators behind these wizard wheezes and ripping yarns, joined by special guest artist Oliver Frey.

In the second half, cartoonists Adam Brockbank, John and Patrice Aggs, Gary Northfield and Sarah McIntyre from new weekly The DFC compare notes on how to make comics appeal to 21st century kids.

Supported by Bloomsbury, Carlton, The DFC & Titan.

All three of today’s talks - £15, £12 concs, £9 members

Tickets: £6, £5 concs, £4 members
Where: Nash & Brandon Rooms, ICA, The Mall, London
When: Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 2pm to 3.30pm
