A COMICA REVIEW BY:

Flavorpill


The following review of the 2007 Comica Festival by Rob Hinchcliffe appeared on the Flavorpill web-site.

Thanks to Comica, the ICA has helped support the comic industry’s effort to break out of geekdom and into the mainstream. The eclectic set of talks, discussions and performances looks beyond the “men in tights” stereotype and concentrates on the more-inspiring and inspired graphical work being produced today - from Japanese manga to Italian realism. Including the ultra-English Posy Simmonds and a Halloween special with more vampires than you can shake a stake at, you should find plenty to spark your interest here, even if your last comic experience involved cow pie.
