Nottingham Does Comics launches this month – and the organisers of the new bi-monthly discussion forum have invited comic creator Jonathan Clode, co-editor of the brilliant To End All Wars anthology  to talk at their first event.

“There’s some really interesting stuff on the agenda,” says Jonathan, “from Shakespeare to 300…and me banging on about Ely hospital and giant monsters.”
