Sins of the Flesh - The Erotic Dinner


An Evening with the Artists behind Judge Dredd and Watchmen
At the Century Club - Soho W1

Tuesday 14th March 2023
doors at 6:30 pm, talk begins at 7 pm

Graphic novel artists Dave Gibbons and Brian Bolland talk to comic book writer and critic Tim Pilcher.

Dave Gibbons and Brian Bolland have a fifty year friendship having met at a comic convention in 1972. Both artists joined the fledgling science fiction title 2000 AD in 1977. Brian was one of the artists who drew Judge Dredd, creating several of its key characters, while Dave went on to collaborate with Alan Moore on Watchmen, one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time. Between them they have worked on franchises such as Dan Dare, Superman, Batman, Dr Who and Star Wars.

In conversation with the comic historian Tim Pilcher, Dave and Brian will take you on a journey of their lives as artists, writers and observers of the world. Each will explore their childhood, friendships, careers and the comics that most inspired their own works. Expect a creative cocktail of the many influences that shaped their trajectories into becoming two of the most outstanding comic artists of their time. The event will also serve as a launch for their autobiographies: Gibbons' ‘Confabulation’ with Pilcher (Dark Horse) and Bolland’s It’s About Time (Book Palace). Signed copies will be available for purchase.
