Over the next three days I shall be attending IGNCC at Bournemouth: an academic comics conference on the theme of “Retro! Time, Memory, Nostalgia”. I have had a paper accepted with the title “Lost In Time: The Problem Of Crediting The Creator In Girls Comics” – drawing on lots of the discoveries and discussions from this blog, of course! Other people are talking about girls comics too – for instance in the same panel session Selina Lock will be talking on “Behind The Panels: The Hidden Histories Of Women In British Comics”.
Of particular interest to the readers of this blog, though, are probably the following two keynote sessions, which I will try to take notes on and write a post or two about.
- Anne Digby (writer for School Friend, Girl, Tammy, Jinty and the Trebizon series of
children’s books) in conversation with Mel Gibson (Remembered Reading) on British
- David Roach (2000AD, Masters of Spanish Comic Book Art) – The Spanish Masters
More to come as I get it, over the following days…
