A COMICA REVIEW BY:

NINTHART


Ninthart is a web-site devoted to the comics medium.

Ninth Art Lighthouse Awards 2004
Outstanding Achievement: Roll Of Honour

In the last couple of years, Paul Gravett has snuck on to the British convention scene to give London one of the most interesting and high quality celebrations of comics the country has ever seen. Gravett has happily embraced manga, anime, minicomics, bande dessinée, and mainstream superhero books under one roof, and this September extended the Comica brand to a separate Manga week. He recently published Manga: Sixty Years Of Japanese Comics, and he’s hard at work on another book, charting the history of the graphic novel. Gravett loves comics - all comics - and it’s fortunate for us that he does.
