Comic Book Babylon event in Brighton

Comic Book BabylonAuthor Tim Pilcher will be hosting an event to romote his book Comic Book Babylon in May, as part of  the Brighton Fringe Festival.

Comic Book Babylon is the candid and amusing odyssey of one comic fan’s quest to get his dream job and becoming the first British member of the DC editorial staff. Join the author Tim, who worked for Vertigo UK, as he takes you through the debauchery and excess of publishing life in the 90s and encounters with Jonathan Ross, The Spice Girls, Blur, Adam Ant, Grant Morrison, Jamie Hewlett, Paul Gambaccini and many more.
