The second Lancaster Comics Day, organised by The Friends of Lancaster Library, will take place on Sunday 5th June 2016.
Along with comic workshops and stalls (enquiries to follmembers AT gmail.com) we’ll be having a panel on British humour comics headed up by veteran comics artist and writer Lew Stringer (whose credits include TOXIC, Beano, VIZ and Doctor Who Magazine), joined by Funny Monsters creator and publisher Joe Matthews and Sparky and Doctor Who? writer Tim Quinn, one of our popular guests in 2015 who regaled us with stories of how he broke into comics after being a circus clown.
Our adventure and superhero comics panel will feature comics writer Andy Diggle, writer Alex Paknadel, artist Sean Phillips and independent comics creator Tom Ward.
With Lancaster awash with SF and Fantasy authors, we’re also pleased to announce a panel featuring novelists AS Chambers, JS Collyer, Eddie Robson and Games creator Ken Walton.
Also on the line-up will be Doctor Who and Judge Dredd Megazine comic artist and book cover illustrator Adrian Salmon.
Graham Pearce will be back with his popular drawing challenges for young comics fans, and we have other plans in the works to entertain you.
Plus, we are promised the return of Comic Cake from Katie White and the popular Games Room (more details on games that will feature at a later date).
More guests for the 2016 event will be announced in due course but will largely be comic creators from the Lancaster area and the North West.
All guests appear subject to work commitments.
About Lancaster Comics Day
The first Lancaster Comics Day, organised by The Friends of Lancaster Library, took place in June 2015 and proved a tremendous success, raising £800 for the Library, which will in part be used to buy black out curtains for the “Sanctuary” room.
Guests included comics writer Andy Diggle, Doctor Who and Judge Dredd artist Dave Taylor, Hellblazer and Doctor Who artist John Ridgway, among others, and local comic creators, authors and retailers also attended the event, which was supported by the Lakes International Comic Art Festival and sponsored by First Age Comics.
