Comics in Conversation: Reel Love
Join us in store for a special discussion and signing with British Comic award nominated writer and cartoonist Owen Michael Johnson to coincide with his graphic novel debut, Reel Love.
Reel Love is the love child of imagination and film that follows a young boy after his life is irreversibly altered after his first trip to the cinema. Filled with endless passion, we see the boy's struggle as he grows from fan to enthusiast to professional - starting with his part-time job as an usher, falling in with the motley crew of cinephile staff and fantasising about his film-filled future.
Hosted by writer and critic Olly MacNamee, we will discuss Owen's journey from small press to publishing house, from Kickstarter to the convention floor. As well as talking about the craft and how to make a living in the comics industry, Owen will be answering your questions and signing copies of his debut graphic novel.
Tickets: Free reservation—simply reserve a place for each person attending!
