Alex Fitch is talking to Dan Berry, a lecturer from North Wales School of art and design about the new Illustration for Graphic Novels course he’s going to be teaching from this autumn, about introducing a new generation to the craft of making comics and also about Dan’s interest in typography and how it’s one of the most under appreciated aspects of comic books.

London Underground Comics Low Energy Day

London Underground Comics' Low Energy Day

LUC is proud to announce its SECOND festival of the year, Low Energy Day on the 30th of August.
After the success of No Barcodes, with its beautiful atmosphere, universal profit making and footfall of over six hundred visitors we’ve decided to do… well pretty much the same again actually.

Plus a couple of sexy bonuses:

Last time we had twelve tables and fifty two exhibitors, this time we are spread over two areas, meaning we can ditch the tables that weren’t in prime positions. We now have ten tables in the original No Barcodes hall, and another five in the centre of the busy Market Hall next door, allowing us to accommodate more creators than ever before, and hopefully give people who asked for space after we were full before a chance to participate.
DJ Laurence Powell from small press legends Modern Monstrosity (Tales From The Flat) will be entertaining us all day with his comics themed mixes in the middle of the main room.
On top of that expect the usual food discounts for taking part in the event, opportunities to sell comics to a large and unsaturated market, and the chance to meet and make friends new and old in the beautiful and popular Camden Lock Market.
