Love German comics? Well, do we have a treat for you! This November, we’ll be bringing Mawil and Uli Oesterle to the UK for a series of events in association with Comica and Thought Bubble festivals. Just in time for the long-awaited English-language release of Uli’s Hector Umbra.
Friday November 18th – Q&A and Signing at Gosh!
Gosh! 1 Berwick Street, London, W1F 0DR
The fun starts with a Q&A and signing at Gosh! in London on the 18th of November where Mawil and Uli will be talking to Resonance FM and Panel Borders’ Alex Fitch as part of Comica celebrations.
Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th November – Thought Bubble Festival!
Armouries Drive, Leeds, LS10 1LT
Immediately following the Gosh! event, we’ll be bundling the entire team in a vehicle (clown-car style) and heading up to Thought Bubble on the 19th and 20th, where visitors will be able to meet Uli and Mawil at the Blank Slate table all weekend. They’ll be signing and reclining along with a whole host of Blank Slaters, including most of the Nelson contributors, our Chalk Marks young guns, and more!
Monday 21st November – Laydeez do Comica
The Sewing Room, The Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage Street, London E1 5LJ
Finally, we’ll be hurtling back down to London for an appearance at the special Comica edition of Laydees do Comics. After last month’s Luchadoras talk with myself and French translator Judith Taboy, we can’t wait to return with a second helping of Eurocomics goodness. Mawil and Uli will be participating in a truly international affair, giving special presentations of their work alongside Canadian Sarah Leavitt and American MK Czerwiec.
