Posted: January 16, 2014
Happy New Year and here’s a great way to start 2014! Comica is thrilled to announce that Paul Pope, the award-winning, American-born, truly international cartoonist, is making his exclusive London speaking engagement for a Comica Conversation at Foyles Bookshop on Tuesday February 4th.
Paul will discuss his remarkable career, creative process, global influences and current projects and will be drawing live, answering your questions and signing his books. Pope’s works include his initially self-published series THB and Escapo (above).
He went on to work for DC Comics, winning multiple Eisner Awards for his electrifying, bat-fanged future vision of Batman Year 100 (above), as well as authoring Vertigo mini-series and graphic novels like Heavy Liquid and 100%(below).
His latest release is the hugely acclaimed, all-ages action-thriller Battling Boy from First Second/Macmillan (below), now in development as a feature movie.
Pope has collaborated on his own clothing range with DKNY, designed for Italy’s Diesel and been commissioned by Japanese giant Kodansha. He is currently preparing Psychenaut, a book of visual essays about Jungian dream analysis, for Dargaud Editions in France.
