BICS2009LEADERBOARD British Comics Creators Turn Out In Force At BICS 2009Media Release — British comic publishers and creators will be showing the public what the indigenous industry has to offer at the Think Tank in Birmingham next weekend.

As well as well known overseas guests like Howard Chaykin and Pasqual Ferry visitors to the show will be able to meet some of the top British creators working in comics today.

Those such as DC and Marvel Writer Andy Diggle, Hellboy artist Duncan Fegredo, the legendary Bryan Talbot, and a whole host of Independent creators and publishers at the cutting edge of UK Comics will be at hand to meet the fans and talk about new work in the pipeline.

New additions to the guest list include 2000ad superstar artist Clint Langley who will be signing copies of his acclaimed graphic novels “Volgan War” and “Slaine: Book Of Invasion” at the 2000ad booth.

Titan Books will also be appearing at the show to find new talent, and Editors will be conducting portfolio reviews on the Saturday joining DC Comics editor Michael Wright as they give up and coming artists the chance to receive feedback on the work and possibly a chance to land their first professional assignment in the industry.

“Many people out there think that British Comics are a thing of the past, but at BICS readers will discover, that it is anything but the truth, with publishers like Com.X, Markosia, and Insomnia innovating with fresh talent and ground breaking stories, expanding the medium in new directions and taking risks creatively,” said show co- organiser Shane Chebsey.
