The First Celebration Of Comics At The National Gallery In Ireland With Forbidden Planet Dublin

Bleeding Cool has gotten word that there's going to be a celebration of comic books at the National Gallery in Dublin, Ireland on August 14th in conjunction with Forbidden Planet International, Dublin. It will be held in the Gallery Lecture Hall and has been arranged to coincide with the Gallery's 150th anniversary.


This one day event will incorporate three panels aimed at breaking down the craft of comic book making into educational discussion. They say that the panels will be "longer" than ones typically held at comic book conventions to "fit in as many questions and tips from the professionals as possible", and that the panel events are particularly geared toward those who are interested in the process of comics art and pursuing the creation of comics.

Panels will be led by Irish comic professionals Stephen Mooney, Ruth Redmond and Jim Fitzpatrick will helm the panels, and also deliver advice about careers in the industry. For more information, you can visit the event's Facebook page.
