Things To Do In London This Week If You Like Comics. And Especially Like Jeffrey Brown. (UPDATE)

While the American comics social scene seems to be taking a breather for Thanksgiving, London has nothing to be thankful for. So, instead, we get the following to be very thankful for instead.

TONIGHT:

Alan Moore in conversation with Lance Parkin, at the Prince Charles Cinema, with a showing of Act Of Faith and Jimmy's End and special guests. I'll be there.

And I'll also pop by Orbital Comics before for a signing and guided exhibition by Emma Rios, for Pretty Deadly.

FRIDAY:

Jeffrey Brown will be signing at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore from 6 – 7pm.

Gosh Comics launches Joe Kessler's Windowpane 2 and Breakdown's whole slate of new releases as well as showing Kessler's screenprints and original art.

Joe Kessler's follow-up to 2012's Windowpane is another one-man-anthology of short narrative and experimental comics. The book is divided into three parts: the first, loose and emotionally open, the second a continuation of the story of Reuben Mwaura, and the third a light-hearted study of creation and the artistic process.
