Since its launch by Nicola Streeten and Sarah Lightman in 2009, Laydeez Do Comics has been the UK's foremost women-led graphic novel forum. Its focus on domestic and autobiographical narratives and the drama of the everyday, and its social evenings provide a friendly and inspiring atmosphere for emerging artists and established practitioners to test new works and ideas.
All are welcome: men and women; those with no knowledge of comics and those already immersed. Home-baked cakes are served too!
