Aline & Robert Crumb Make Their Only UK Appearance at Comica Festival 2012!

Posted: October 16, 2012

Crumbs! We’re starting to announce this year’s stunning line-up for Comica Festival 2012, the 9th London International Comics Festival, spreading across the month of November and across assorted venues all over the capital. And it doesn’t get much classier than welcoming Aline and Robert Crumb to make their only public appearance exclusively at Comica. The Crumbs are over here to launch their collected autobiographical comics in an essential hardcover compendium Drawn Together, published in the UK by Knockabout Comics. The venue, date and time for your diaries are Foyles in Charing Cross Road, London on Saturday November 3rd at 6.30pm. Sign up right now for the Comica Newsletter to get first notification of how and when you can buy tickets (which will be limited and of course in high demand), or check back on this website regularly for further updates.
