Hosted by SYP Scotland in conjunction with Graphic Scotland, supported by the Glasgow University Comics Society.
The typical self-published prose novel is still considered a very poor relation to formal publishing. But in the comics and graphic novel industry, self-publishing is an established, respected way to produce work. Indie halls at comic cons are bulging with unique and beautiful stories. So what can the publishing industry do for comics, and what can comics do for publishing?
Comics creators and publishers from around the UK, including Martin Conaghan (Burke and Hare, Reflections) and Gary Erskine (Roller Grrrls, 2000AD, Marvel, DC, Madefire) and The Comics Grid's Ernesto Priego get together in a panel hosted by Graphic Scotland's John McShane, to debate the issues.
Carry on the conversation over drinks afterwards, and maybe even buy some comics!
The first ten Edinburgh-based people to book will also get free transport to and from Glasgow.
Tickets £3, or free for SYP members. Book via Event Brite: http://comicspublishers.eventbrite.co.uk/
