A COMICA REVIEW BY:

THOMAS BEHE


Thomas Behe is the co-creator (with Phil Elliott) of Contraband, a graphic novel set in the near future exploring the social impact of mobile-phone technology. More details can be found at the Contraband blog. The following comments appeared on the blog on November 7, 2007.

What a top night out - the ICA’s final night of Comica in London was one of the best eves I’ve had in months. Meeting the chaps who created the top webcomic (& now graphic novel collection) Shooting War - followed by a bit of Contraband promo chat over beers with some of the UK’s coolest comic types - concluded with the premiere screening of Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis (this is one fantastic movie). Even got in a quick chat reflecting on the Toronto Comic Film Festival with Paul Gravett - who was one of the guys heading up this year’s Comica event.
