Chaired by Gavin MacDonald (Literary Editor of Flux Magazine and occasional contributor to The Comics Journal), with panel speakers to include Paul Gravett (Director of the Comica Festival at London’s ICA) and Mardou (comic writer/artist whose titles include Manhole, see £3.50 full / £3.00 concs (includes £1.00 off any screening in the Comix season)
