What Makes a Cult Comic? - A Comica Conversation in Association with Broken Frontier

Friday 7th November 2014 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Join us for this Comica panel event discussing small press and cult comics to launch The Mammoth Book of Cult Comics, with editor Ilya and a host of practising artists and critics.

ComicaDefining this sector of the publishing industry as often 'honest, heartfelt, homemade', Ilya (left) is a committed comics creator himself, whose latest graphic novel is Room For Love from SelfMadeHero. Ilya is joined in this Comica Conversation by Rob Davis (right), co-editor of the acclaimed UK anthology Nelson (Blank Slate Press) and creator of a brilliantly bizarre solo debut, The Motherless Oven (SelfMadeHero). Also taking part is Carol Swain, one of the most distinctive and lyrical voices in British comics, whose latest book Gast (Fantagraphics) traces a teenage girl's investigations into the death of a Welsh cross-dressing farmer. Another debut graphic novelist, Paul Rainey, will be on hand to discuss There's No Time Like The Present, a mind-expanding speculation about how the future evolution of the internet could radically disrupt our lives. His self-published, seven-year serial is now revised and collected in hardcover by Escape Books.

Hosting the discussion will be expert and critic Andy Oliver, whose 'Small Pressganged' columns on the Broken Frontier website 'shine a spotlight on the often overlooked world of small press, self-published and altcomics'.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Doors open at 6.30pm
The panelists will be available to sign their books at the end of the event
