HOME

Nottingham Does Comics is a bi-monthly forum by and for anybody interested in reading, creating, publishing, selling or studying new work and new horizons in the comics medium. It is a platform where those curious about comics can explore and exchange ideas with established and aspiring practitioners, where the mainstream meets the indies, and where embryonic projects will be supported to find their wings.

 

Our evenings feature two or three guest presentations designed to inspire, with plenty of time for Q&As, chat and being sociable. They are free events but a £3 donation towards room hire will be appreciated.

UPCOMING - NDC at Nottingham Writers Studio

Tuesday 10th April 7:30pm

April’s meeting will be totally given over to Nottingham’s Hackspace comics group and facilitated by Nat Titman and Gareth Howell. They will give a brief intro to Hackspace and talk about some of their results they are most impressed by, but most of the evening will be a practical comics-making session requiring no great skill at writing or drawing but in which we will be steered through the creation of our very own comics page/s.

All materials will be provided, so it’s fun and games upcoming in the month of Fools!!

Despite having a different brief, Nottingham Does Comics acknowledges a debt to Laydeez-Do-Comics, the women’s-led comics forum that focuses on works based on life narrative, the drama of the domestic and the everyday.
