Campbell at ComICA 2009

gn_topshelf_alec_pants.jpgMark it in your calendar: Eddie Campbell is the first confirmed international guest for the Comica Festival ‘09.

Over from Australia, Eddie will be in conversation with a special guest on Saturday 7th November, 7pm to 9.00pm in the Nash Room at the ICA, and then signing books afterwards, in particular his new 640-page compilation Alec: The Years Have Pants.

Published by Top Shelf, the book collects the whole saga, including the early episodes first serialised in Escape Magazine and three Escape graphic novels.

Earlier that Saturday — between 2 and 4.00pm — he’ll also be signing at the London comic shop Gosh!.
