Mark Millar in Dunblane

Wanted creator Mark Millar, Dr Mel Gibson, Ivor Davis of Red Hot Comics in Glasgow and staff from graphic novel publishers Classical Comics and Metromedia UK will be discussing graphic novels in Dunblane, Scotland, later this month.

Organised by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in Scotland the one day event, titled Get To Know Graphic Novels, takes place at the Dunblane Centre on 20 November is not free (£60 for non-members of the Institute) but is sure to be of considerable interest to educationalists, library staff and, perhaps, graphic novel sellers.

Mark Millar has written some of the most successful English-language comics of the last few years and has, for six years running, been the best-selling British writer working in America. His current projects are Ultimates 2 with artist Bryan Hitch, Ultimate Fantastic Four with artist Greg Land and Marvel Civil War with artist Steve McNiven.

Mel Gibson is a UK based comics scholar and consultant who has run training and promotional events about comics and graphic novels for libraries, schools and other organizations since 1993 and also runs training events on manga, working with young adults in libraries, working with picture books and the links between children’s books and the Internet.
