This Saturday, June 14th, Drawn & Quarterly (that's me! And the Chief, Chris Oliveros) is winging its way across the Atlantic in order to exhibit at the third annual East London Comics and Arts Festival. Find us in London at the Oval Space (32 The Oval, London E2 9DU) on Saturday June 14th from 10 am to 7 pm. Entry to the show is £3 and tickets are available online now, as well as at the door.
|Anouk Ricard (Benson's Cuckoos) and Seth (Palookaville 21)|
|Tom Gauld (You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack) and Chris Ware (Jordan Wellington Lint)|
And look at these faces! A whole bunch of D+Q authors will be on hand at the show too: Anouk Ricard, Seth, Tom Gauld, and Chris Ware! It's going to be quite the day. Here's our schedule - please note that all programming takes place at The Pickle Factory (13-14 the Oval, just across the street from ELCAF), and that all signings will be at the D+Q tables:
11:30 am Panel: Anouk Ricard in conversation with Robert Hanks
12 pm to 1 pm Seth and Tom Gauld signing at D+Q table
1 pm to 1 pm Anouk Ricard signing at D+Q table
2 pm to 3 pm Chris Ware and Seth signing at D+Q table
3 pm to 4 pm Anouk Ricard signing at D+Q table
4 pm to 5 pm Tom Gauld signing at D+Q table
5 pm Panel: Seth in conversation with Paul Gravett
6 pm Panel: Chris Ware spotlight
Tickets for the talks are available here, though it looks like Chris Ware and Seth's talks have *gulp* already sold out. But, pretty much the best consolation prize?
You can get your mitts on our debut title for the show, the delightfully offbeat, office-humor-mystery, first-of-her-books-for-adults-we're-publishing, Benson's Cuckoos by Anouk Ricard. Other exciting new titles that I think are not widely available in the UK but will be at ELCAF:
Everywhere Antennas by Julie Delporte, Petty Theft by Pascal Girard, and Showa 1939-1944: A History of Japan by Shigeru Mizuki (that's the second volume, y'all). A fine-looking bunch, if we do say so ourselves.
All right, I think my work here is done; now it's up to you, London! Show us what you got… or at least come on by the D+Q tables and say hi to us this weekend. Ta-ta!
