Let’s Do the Timewarp Again…

CAPTION, if you aren’t aware, is a long-running comics festival dedicated to the British independent and small comics press — and also the longest running comics festival in Britain by many years.

A week before the 2008 ‘Timewarp’ themed event, Andrew Luke ran some questions about the event around CAPTION regulars from early days to recent times, which you can read on the main downthetubes site.

As previously reported, CAPTION 2008 also has an affiliated art exhibition over August at The Jam Factory near Oxford railway station, and the event itself takes place this weekend at the East Oxford Community Centre on Cowley Road. 2000AD comics creator D’Israeli has just posted some pictures from the launch event here.
