If you’ve bagged tickets for this weekend’s Empire film extravaganza at the 02, then be sure to pop your head into the SelfMadeHero events in Cinema 8, the comics stage. On Friday morning you’ll find Robert Sellers and JAKe previewing their hellraising graphic biography live on stage. As at Latitude, you might get lucky and pick up a nice JAKe portrait of Oliver Reed or Peter O’Toole at the end of the event.
On Sunday afternoon you’ll find the illustrious and industrious Ian Edginton on stage with Mike Carey of Unwritten fame and Chris Weston the 2000AD stalwart sharing their tips on writing for comics and taking questions from the audience.
We’ll be there to soak up the atmosphere, watch the previews and share what we find interesting through the medium of Twitter.
Super swanky “Diamond Tickets” (which allow access to all the previews and probably some other privileges on the day) are available from the Big Screen website.
The listings for the events featuring SelfMadeHero creators are listed below and the full line-up for each day can be found here:
