Lying In The Gutters - 24th October 2011

Paul Gravett is one of the most respected people in the British Comics Industry. Dubbed the Man At The Crossroads by Eddie Campbell, he is principally responsible for bringing the UK small press to mainstream attention in the eighties, introducing many formative creative teams, and publishing a number of them, creating the Comica festival that seems to run all year round now and generally being an expert in comic books when the media come calling.

And here he is dressed as Astro Boy. Enjoy.
