From 2000AD to Grandville, Bryan Talbot has been long acclaimed as a supreme artist and writer of comics and graphic novels. Together with his wife Mary he gained mainstream recognition when Dotter of Her Fathers Eyes was awarded a 2013 Costa Book Prize. They have collaborated again on new title Sally Heathcote: Suffragette, a gripping tale of loyalty, love and courage set within the campaign for votes for women and a vividly realised backdrop of Edwardian Britain.
The event begins with a screening of the documentary Graphic Novel Man: The Comics of Bryan Talbot, followed by Bryan, Mary and Kate Charlesworth in conversation with Rachel Cooke of The Observer.
