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 £2 donation will be appreciated.


ABOUT features a more detailed statement of our guiding principles.

GUESTS is a list of previous speakers, who they are, what they do and where to see more of  their work.

UPCOMING flags up our next meeting and guest speakers.

BLOG is an account of our last meeting, either by one of our contributors or a member of the audience, plus any other stuff that might be of interest that has caught our web maestro’s eye.

PAST FLIERS is a handy guide for upcoming guests to get a sense of what we need for our publicity.

CONTACT speaks for itself, but please do not expect an immediate response.

UPCOMING - NDC at Nottingham Writers Studio

Tuesday 12th December 7:30pm

Yup, December’s is an extra meeting and a special one. It’s Christmas so we have a session featuring seven comics and zine artists drawing live, projected on screen and chatting about whatever ambles through their minds while at work. Some are the simplest of cartoonists, some the most detailed of illustrators, each a unique talent. And when not entertaining you, they’ll probably be promenarding and drawing, adding their sketches to the NDC Doodle Gallery, which we’d like all to add to. Paper and drawing materials will be available, and we’d love it if everybody has a go.

There will also be food and drink available, but please bring something along to add to the fuddle, if only your favourite tipple. And this is a session we positively encourage you to bring a young person along to!

NDC.advert.A5.lowresDespite 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.
