The London Book Fair will again be promoting graphic novels tomorrow (13th April) with a seminar entield The Graphic Novel Renaissance, chaired by Paul Gravett.
Has a “tipping point” been reached for graphic novels? Leading editors and publishers from the UK’s best and brightest graphic novel publishers discuss the rapidly changes occurring to this flourishing publishing sector.
The seminar is chaired by ComICA’s Paul Gravett, freelance journalist, curator, lecturer, writer and broadcaster, and speakers are Sam Arthur, Director, Nobrow Press; Olivier Cadic, Managing Director, Cinebook; Emma Hayley, Publishing Director, SelfMadeHero; and Lizzie Spratt, Commissioning Editor, Walker Books.
Almost 30 graphic novel publishers attended last year’s event despite disruption caused by the volcanic ash cloud problems which meant many would-be attendees did not get to the Fair.
