Cadwell do Comics

Next Monday 25th March, I shall be speaking at the monthly Laydeez Do Comics event in Leeds. I shall be talking about my work in webcomics and self publishing with The Everyday, the formation of Great Beast, the publishing group I co-founded, and perhaps a little on Blood Blokes. As if me and a slideshow wasn’t enough for you, I will also have books and comics for sale, so if you’ve been waiting to buy from me directly and you live near Leeds, this is your chance.

‘Laydeez Do Comics: Leeds’ is held at Wharf Chambers (23-25 Wharf Street, Leeds, LS2 7EQ), runs from 6.30pm – 9.30ish and costs £1.50. Girls and boys welcome.

Also speaking at the event are:

Melanie Maddison – Artist
‘Colouring Outside The Lines’ – a zine featuring interviews with contemporary female artists.

Dr Mel Gibson – Academic, Northumbria University.
What became of Bunty? – The lost history of British comics for girls.

“Laydeez do Comics is the UK’s first women’s led comics forum, that focuses on autobiographical comics and dramas of the everyday. It was started by illustrator Nicola Streeten & artist Sarah Lightman in London in 2009. Laydeez do Comics: Leeds was set up in November 2012 and is run by illustrator Louise Crosby.”


An hour before ‘Laydeez Do Comics’ there’s another comic-related event in the very same city!

Comics Forum presents… Death and the Superhero: Strikeforce Morituri with José Alaniz
Henry Moore Institute, 5-6pm. Free event. To book your free ticket, email:

“José Alaniz, From the University of Washington, Seattle is author of Komiks: Comic Art in Russia. The talk examines the late 1980s Marvel Comics series Strikeforce: Morituri which took as its premise the inescapable mortality of its superteam’s members, for a consideration of the ways “real” death warps and complicates the routinely death-denying superhero genre.”

Come say hi!
