Comica Comiket Back in May

Comiket Spring 2016

London’s Comica Comiket: The Independent Comics Market comes complete with a Cavalcade of Celebrity Cartoonists drawing live throughout the afternoon in The Fabulous Drawing Parade on Saturday 14th May 2016.

Part of the Comica London Weekender at House of Illustration, this is an opportunity to discover the wonderful and diverse worlds of independent comics, at an event which will take place beneath the giant Victorian glass-roofed shed that spans the gap between the brand new building for the House Of Illustration and the Central St Martins College of Art building next door.

The Comica Comiket at the British Library in 2014 was a huge success and the organisers are all filled with excitement and anticipation to do it again over the last weekend of the Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics exhibition.

Many more details are yet to come about Celebrity guests and events on the Saturday and the Sunday. There are also comics exhibitions to see at the House Of Illustration and there will also be Degree Shows on display in the crossway Central St Martins College of Art building.
