Event Details

Graphic novelist and Booktrust online writer in residence Hannah Berry ('Britten and Brulightly', 'Adamtine') invites you to try a comic or two on for size. In association with Comica Festival, Hannah and Paul Gravett will be in conversation with some of the country's best graphic novelists.

15 NOVEMBER 2012: NEW ADDITION TO THE LINE-UP: POSY SIMMONDS ('Tamara Drewe')!

We're excited to announce that on 19 November 2012, you can see Dave McKean ('Arkham Asylum'), Simone Lia ('Fluffy', 'Please God, Find Me A Husband'), Sarah McIntyre ('Vern and Lettuce', 'Nelson', 'Airship'), Glyn Dillon ('The Nao of Brown'), Karrie Fransman and more graphic novelists still to be announced.

  • They will tell you why they love the funny books.
  • You can ask them questions about comics.
  • We can all rejoice in graphic novels.
  • The world can watch as we present to you just why graphic novels are just as good as literary fiction.
