An evening with acclaimed North American graphic novelist Craig Thompson in conversation with comics authority Paul Gravett.
Craig Thompson combines breathtaking imagination, poignant family drama and sharp ecological awareness in Space Dumplins – his first full-colour graphic novel for some time.
In the tradition of plucky heroines like Alice, and their astonishing adventures, his new character Violet is on an intergalactic quest to save her father in a bizarre polluted future.
In this exclusive London speaking appearance, he also discusses his award-winning graphic novels – the autobiographical breakthrough Blankets and his powerful Islamic fairytale Habibi.
