dave-gibbons-the-story-so-far-part-2If you haven’t been to the Cor! Buy Gum! Zarjaz! The Story of British Comics So Far exhibition in Woking, this is your best excuse yet.

On Wednesday 26th October at 7pm, Dave Gibbons will be there giving an illustrated lecture on his career, ranging from his schoolboy love of comics through his early years in the business to his later work on 2000AD, Dr Who, Green Lantern, Superman, Batman, Martha Washington and, of course, Watchmen. Along the way, he will touch on his drawing process, the digital revolution in comics, his appointment as Comics Laureate and his hopes for the future of the medium.

The talk will last for approximately 45 minutes with a short time for questions. Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the evening talks. Wine and juice are available. Tickets are £12, including a drink.

The associated exhibition ‘The Story of British Comics So Far’ will be open from 6.30pm. The talk will run from 7pm to 8pm. You can see what Bleeding Cool thought of it here…
