London is home to a wide variety of comics events big and small throughout the year, but since 2003 perhaps the most adventurous and wide-ranging has been Comica, the London International Comics Festival. Comica runs its main season during November and offers further events all year round. Over the years superstar guests have included Alan Moore, Chris Ware, Joann Sfar, Alex Maleev, Charles Burns, Bryan Talbot, Seth, Marjane Satrapi, Ben Templesmith, Dave McKean, Joe Sacco, Lorenzo Mattotti, Adrian Tomine, Posy Simmonds, Kevin O’Neill, Art Spiegelman, Brian Bolland, Gilbert Shelton, Daniel Clowes and James Jean, to namedrop just a few.
Comica 2011 is partnering with British publishing sensation Nobrow Press and opens November 3rd with a launch party for the new incarnation of the biannual Nobrow Journal, now twice the size to include comics by thirty international contributors including Tom Gauld, Kevin Huizenga and Malachi Ward.
