12.30-1.30 Venue: BAC Screen 2

Meet Nick Abadzis on a rare visit to the UK and find out why he is one of the most respected and loved UK comic artists both by creators and audiences of all ages. His novel Laika about the first dog in space won many awards including the prestigious Eisner in 2008. Hugo Tate has been described as “Britain’s Love and Rockets”; meanwhile his comics and illustrations have appeared in publications as diverse as Doctor Who Magazine, Punch, The Times and David Fickling Comics.

Joelle Bernard is a French librarian who fell in love with comics when she was just 5 years old and is recognised as a comics’ aficionado. In 2003 she met Nick Abadzis at the Angouleme Festival in France and has been a fan and a friend ever since. Joelle will share her enthusiasm and knowledge of Nick’s work and introduce his latest book (co-authored with David Camus), The Cigar that Fell in Love With a Pipe, a tragi-comic tale of love, heartbreak and tobacco starring Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth.
