Kendal’s 6th annual festival of comic art is almost upon us. It promises to be bigger and more varied than ever – just check out the range of what’s on! There’s still time to book tickets if you haven’t already.
For my part, the events listed below are what I’m focused on right now: the one’s I’m preparing for. I’ve already posted about Traces of the Great War and its UK launch of during the Kendal festival weekend (plus its French launch in Albert the weekend before). Bryan and I will also be giving an exclusive advance preview of our next graphic novel, Rain:
11.30 Reimagining history …writers and comic creators (Panel 1, Friday Sessions)
Panellists: Mary Talbot, Orijit Sen, Joe Kelly and Charlie Adlard. Chair: Nataša Lacković
12.30 Bryan & Mary Talbot – Preview (hosted by John Freeman)
Council Chamber, Comics Clock Tower
4pm Traces of the Great War – The Official UK Launch (hosted by Nataša Lacković & Pascal Meriaux)
Brewery Arts Centre Theatre
Rain is our fourth book-length collaboration and the second with Arts Council support. It’s a complete departure from our previous books together, being neither biographical nor historically distant. Instead it deals with the here and now of the environmental degradation that threatens us all. It’s scheduled for publication by Jonathan Cape in October 2019.
