We are delighted to announce an extra-special COMICA Festival event at Gosh! Comics with Swiss graphic novel superstar, Frederik Peeters. His previous graphic novel, Blue Pills was a masterpiece and his latest – Sandcastle – has been shocking reviewers up and down the country for all the right reasons.
Peeters is coming to the UK to speak about Sandcastle, which he authored with French film director, Pierre Oscar Levy. He’ll be in conversation with COMICA Festival Director, Paul Gravett at 7pm preceded and followed by signing sessions and a chance to talk with him directly.
Copies of Sandcastle bought at the Gosh! event come with a signed, hand numbered art print by Peeters (edition of 350) – you lucky people. The art print is pictured below.
If you can’t make the Gosh! event, Peeters will be making two other appearances during his visit. The first is at a seminar for comic artists SelfMadeHero is running in association with Karrie Fransman and London Print Studio, which we’ll be holding at SMH HQ during the daytime on Friday 11th November. Although places are free, places are very limited and we’ll announce the full details tomorrow.
The last chance to see Peeters is at the COMICA Comiket on Saturday 12th November in the Great Hall at Bishopsgate Institute, where he’ll be taking part in the Drawing Parade.
Sandcastle by Frederik Peeters is published by SelfMadeHero on 11th November 2011 as is available for pre-order from the country’s leading comic retailers nationwide as well as online.
We would like to thank Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council, for their support in helping to make his visit possible.
