It seems Image Duplicator has got people talking … The private view, attended by a number of artists including co-curators Rian Hughes & Jason Atomic, Dave Gibbons, Garry Leach, Steve Cook, DJ Food, Robin Barnard and friends, has been covered extensively, and people can’t get enough of the ongoing discussion about Lichtenstein and his work.

In the spirit of that, Orbital Comics hosted a very special panel discussion on Thursday May 23, to explore Lichtenstein’s work and the original comics he drew inspiration from. Hosted by our own Chris Thompson, the panel was completed by:

Rian Hughes (exhibition co-curator)
Rian is a renowned artist, designer & typographer who has worked for many years in the comic business.
