As this year’s Lakes International Comic Art Festival approaches, the focus at Talbot Towers is on all things Grandville. The main event for us will be a special festival pre-publication launch of Grandville Force Majeure, with Bryan’s ‘Grandville the Last Chapter’ event with Peter Kessler. It’s on Saturday 14th at 1.15pm, in the Malt Room, Brewery Arts Centre. Cosplayers are cordially invited to turn up as a Grandville character, with a chance to win some original artwork. This event will be followed by a signing in the Comics Clock Tower’s Georgian Room. Page 45 will have advance copies of the book, which is not on general release until the following month.
As part of the Windows Trail in Kendal, Bryan has put together a fabulous Grandville display that will grace the windows of the St John’s Hospice shop. The shop’s situated between the Brewery Arts Centre and the Clock Tower, so the display will be hard to miss.
On Saturday 14th at 10.30am, I’ll be in the Clock Tower’s Council Chambers with the marvellous Metaphrog (a.k.a. Sandra Marrs and John Chalmers), talking about The Little Mermaid and more…
Grandville Force Majeure goes on general release on November 14th in conjunction with an exhibition at Orbital Comics, London. Meanwhile, here’s a trailer to watch!
