I’m honoured to be speaking at the Creative Networks event held at Birmingham City University on Thursday 25th February. I’ll be talking via Skype from 7-9pm about comics in general and in particular discussing Charley’s War and Action Comic.

I’ve also been mentoring BCU students on a new ‘reloaded’ reinterpretation of Charley’s War, and this collaborative work – filming, recording and workshops – will be showcased at the event from 6.30pm.

A big thanks to Xavier Mendik, Associate Professor in Film at BCU for making all of this happen. I first met Xavier at last year’s Cine-Exess, which was hosted at the School of Art, Design and Media at the University of Brighton, where I was a guest of honour and was delighted to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from Professor Martin Barker, author of Action – The Story of a Violent Comic (Titan Books, 1990).

The Creative Networks talk is held at the Curzon Building, Curzon Street, Birmingham, and is free – you just need to register for a place.
