The Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2019
Excited to be attending this show for the first time. We’re bringing the nipper with us, so if you see a porridge/puke-shouldered writer with a haunted look and a week-old New York hangover, and/or a baby: come say hey.
Herein: where and when I’ll be.
NB: for SIGNINGS, it seems the show doesn’t lay-on scheduled scribble sessions in the US style, but sets aside time after panels. (A method I’ve seen working rather nicely at Euro shows.) So if you’ve got a stack of stuff for me to deface, bring it along to one of the below.
SATURDAY OCTOBER 12TH
No programmed events! I’ll be wandering the show floor, and/or haunting any available bars. I’m not that scary. Come and say Hi.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 13TH
12.30-1.30pm - PANEL: THE WRITING GAME
Location: BREWERY ARTS CENTRE Theatre
Join Alex Fitch in conversation with Rob Williams, Si Spurrier and Garth Ennis.
NB: There miiiight be sweariness. We’ll try our best not to, but we are weak.
Also NB: Apparently there’ll be some manner of signing session afterwards.
2.15-3.15pm - Panel: DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS
Location: Brewery Arts Centre Screen Two
Andy Diggle, Becky Cloonan and Si Spurrier discuss the similarities and influences between Dungeons and Dragons and the comic book world with a focus on storytelling and character development across both mediums.
NB: Full disclosure, I’m a wretched noob. What little D’n’D I’ve played, I’ve loved, but don’t expect much insight from over here. I imagine I’ll be asking Andy and Becky at least as many disruptive questions as the rest of you. Should be fun.
NB: as above, probably some manner of signing session after the talk.
