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 19th October 7:30pm

Tonight we’re digging deep. Our three guests will be revealing the fine detail lurking in a mainstream classic, an indie self-published work and an ‘art’ graphic novel, which means…

Josh Franks, chief comics reviewer of the on-line Ink magazine, will be casting a critical eye over Black Bolt, Marvel’s latest mould-breaking success. Indie creator Nate Beaumont will be magnifying the fine background details in a panel that, through peripheral vision, can impart  so much about a featured character. And Nottingham University professor Matt Green will be carving deep into Mary and Bryan Talbot’s The Red Virgin to reveal the Utopian within.

Sounds like one of those sessions that’ll stimulate a lot of discussion and food for thought. It’s gonna be good!

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.
