THE GREAT WAR IN COMICS

Festivals |
19th October 2014

10.30-11.30 Venue: BAC Theatre

Marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, Abbot Hall Art Gallery and the Lakes International Comic Art Festival have brought together, for the first time, the work of three internationally-acclaimed artists who have shed new light on this conflict through the medium of comic art – Charlie Adlard, Joe Colquhoun and Ivan Petrus.  The White Death, Charley’s War and The Ghost of Passchendaele put ordinary people’s stories in the spotlight using the unique verbal and visual range that comic art can offer. Join Tim Pilcher (co-founder of the publishing house, Les Cartoonistes Dangereux, which was the original publisher of White Death) to assess how comic art has provided an alternative perspective on the reality of war and to discover why these artists have chosen to tackle this subject at all.
