Striptacular New Comic at The Thing…

We plugged the UK Web and Minicomix Thing 2009 in Mile End, London this weekend earlier this week, but one comic to look out for there will be Francesca Cassavetti‘s Striptacular, a 36-page comic featuring nine brand spanking new strips, including her entry for last year’s Observer competition.

Francesca whose creations include Fabian Carr, Bloke in a Dressing Gown and New Man, has been supplying cartoons and illustrations to a variety of clients, including Harper Collins, Emap and the BBC for a number of years, all the while creating her own comic strips and stories.

Francesca will be sharing her table with Tempo Lush illustrator Richy K Chandler and the lovely Sally Ann Hickman.
