Aside from hearing first-hand how comic strips are developed, you might even pick yourselves up a free comic…
“I’m talking about my career and about creating a Billy the Cat comic strip and sketching aliens as part of the Museum’s ‘Invasion’ exhibition,” says Nigel. “I’ve got a couple of days of workshops during the half term as well.
“I’ll also be giving away tons of unwanted comics and graphic novels on the Sundays.”
