Coming Up: An Evening Of Creepy Comics at London’s Cartoon Museum

The nights are getting longer, there’s a chill in the air, it’s the time of year when we all feel strangely drawn together. So why not draw together around the Cartoon Museum fire* in London, to talk about the ghostly, the ghastly and the eerie? Yes… It’s time for … An Evening Of Creepy Comics!

On the Wednesday 11th December, Morbid Mark Stafford (The Bad Bad Place), Chthonic Cathy Brett (Who Killed Jojo?), Necropolitan Douglas Noble (Jazz Creepers) and Diabolical Dan White (Sticky Ribs), unrepentant cartoonists of the uncanny one and all, will gather to discuss the wide wide world of creepy comics, in their various forms, from EC to underground, manga to mainstream, all manner of nightmarish sequential art will be ruthlessly dissected and assessed in gruesome detail.
