Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips in Conversation with Kieron Gillen

Big news, comics fans! Ed Brubaker’s coming to the UK thanks to the Lakes International Comics Festival, and we nabbed him and his long-time collaborator and partner-in-crime Sean Phillips for a talk on the 21st of October, hosted in the shop.

Brubaker and Phillips’ first full collaboration was the Wildstorm title “Sleeper”, a gritty thriller about an undercover agent leading a forgotten-about life as a supervillain. Since then they’ve worked together on such titles as the Eisner Award-winning Marvel Icon series “Criminal”, “Incognito”, and their current Lovecraftian series from Image, “Fatale”, which adds a supernatural horror element to Brubaker’s enthusiasm for pulpy crime stories and Phillips’ singular noir aesthetic.

Apart from their collaborations, Brubaker has written critically-acclaimed runs of Captain America and the Immortal Iron Fist (plus the excellent Gotham Central, which is always worth mentioning), while Phillips is a firm fixture in the UK comics scene with extensive drawing work for 2000AD and Hellblazer under his belt.

They will be in conversation with Kieron Gillen, writer of the cult-status-worthy series Phonogram and the current super-fun run of Young Avengers (Kieron also has a great-looking new series called “Three” out soon from Image, with Ryan Kelly on art). And he has a history of quizzing comic creators about their process: an occasional podcast called Decompressed, which you can find on his blog.

This talk will be ticketed, so be advised that there are limited places available. Tickets are on sale at wegottickets.com now for £4 plus booking fee!
