UK Comics Creator Survey: “Show Me The Audience” Discussion Online Tonight

UK Comics Creator Survey 2020

Tonight (Tuesday 13th October, 8.00pm) will see another online session following up on the release of the UK Comics Creator Survey co-ordinated by Comics Laureate Hannah Berry, discussing the audience for comics in the UK.

Is anyone outside of comics actually buying independent comic creators work, and how important is it that they do? How can the comics community tackle public indifference and/or disdain?

“This is the big one,” says Hannah, who will lead the online session – and you can sign up here via EventBrite. “The root of all our problems. Probably.”

Joining Hannah will be Katriona Chapman, creator of the graphic novels Breakwater and Follow Me In; Karrie Fransman, creator of Death of the Artist and The House that Groaned; Alex Norris, creator of “Oh No” comics; Hassan Otsmane-Elhau the Eisner-winning editor of @PanelxPanel; and Dr Ian Williams, comics artists and author of The Bad Doctor and The Lady Doctor.

Join them, as they hunt for creative ways to get comics into more people’s lives.
