A COMICA REVIEW BY:

MARTIN EDEN


Martin Eden is a UK-based comics creator. Martin attended the Comica '09 conversation with James Jean and Tara McPherson at the ICA on Friday 13 November.

Just got in after the James Jean/Tara talk tonight. Yet another fabulous evening. I really liked their talks and they were very well put together. And like Adrian Tomine, I expected James to be a bit of a recluse, but he was amazingly entertaining!

What interested me most was that these two guys just do their own thing. They make no bones about not particularly wanting to draw comic issues, and yet they’ve managed to carve their own niches in the comic world. Fascinating.

I’m so glad I discovered your website with all the Events on there - I would have missed out on so many fascinating events!
