Comic Creator first for ICA

Paul Gravett has been in touch to tell us about a pretty special event, Between The Panels 3, which will take place on 2 August 2008 at the ICA in London.

ComICA will be hosting the first ever in-depth discussion between two quintessentially British pioneers of graphic novels: Raymond Briggs, author of titles such as Fungus the Bogeyman, When The Wind Blows and Ethel & Ernest, and Bryan Talbot, author of Luther Arkwright and Alice in Sunderland, covering over three decades of their comics creativity and marking new editions of Gentleman Jim and The Tale of One Bad Rat.

The event — not yet bookable but will be soon – will be chaired by Rachel Cooke of The Observer and will be followed by book signings. More at:
