Comics Gathering on Sat 31 May 2008

Dear comics lovers and creators,

All are invited to attend our 2nd ever monthly comics gathering -- a weekend picnic at Botanic Gardens. This is an informal meet-up for the Singapore comics community to get to know one another and share in our common passion.

Whether you are an amateur or professional artist or writer, or you are just interested in the creative process of doing comics, or you just want to meet like-minded comics lovers, we are hoping to bring everyone together.

Discussion topic:
Don't miss a serious but fun presentation and analysis, "Bondage in comics: a necessary part of the comic book framework?" by Ric Rivas, former film school lecturer at Columbia College Hollywood and long-time avid comic book reader. More details in the next posting on this mailing list:

Some pics to go with that:

Sorry everyone. Due to the likelihood of bad weather and a lack of responses, we will NOT be going ahead with this gathering.
