Cometting isn’t what it used to be.
Comiket - aka the Independent Comics Market - will be taking place at The British Library this Saturday. Of course, us Jonathan Cape-rs will be there so make sure you come along, browse our wares and say hello.
There’ll also be a Cavalcade of Crazy Cartoonists drawing live throughout the afternoon in The Fabulous Drawing Parade, and a special appearance from radiomaru. On the Cape front, S. J. Harris, author of the wonderful Eustace, will be signing books too.
It’s on at The British Library, from 10:30 am until 4:30pm. Entry is free so there’s no excuse not to come.
