Can you laugh out loud while someone drones on for hours and hours about bloomin’ comic books? If so, Bay TV Liverpool want you to be part of the audience at Liverpool’s Central Library on Saturday 30th January 2016.
You will witness the complete history of comic books, from the very first cave wall drawing up to the very latest Mary Worth! Also, former Marvel UK and Marvel Comics staffer Tim Quinn, the guy known as one half of Dicky Howett, tells his own astonishing story of what he found while working for the comic book, magazine and newspaper publishers of Great Britain and the US.
Here at downthetubes we’ve been witness to just some of Tim’s astonishing stories of his life in comics, from his early days working as a clown in Blackpool, becoming a writer for DC Thomson’s weekly humour comic, Sparky, his battles with Marketing at Marvel UK, his work in the US for Marvel Comics and other publishers… and his valiant efforts to bring us more comics down the years – and encourage young persons to take up the challenge to create them.
We’re sure this is going to be an amazing event, but be warned! It’s not suitable for those of a nervous disposition!
Tim is currently presenting a number of shows for Bay TV, including Twice Upon A Time, reading stories for young and old that Jackanory fans may enjoy; and presenting numerous music and arts shows, including About Books, which has featured a special edition of the show featuring a visit the the Science Fiction Archive at the University of Liverpool. Some of the shows are being re-presented on Bay TV’s YouTube channel.
