Five Years Of Bringing The Art Of Comics To Kendal

♦ Last weekend, 13-15 October, was the fifth annual Lakes International Comics Art Festival or LICAF. Held up in Kendal in Cumbria in the Lake District, TRIPWIRE editor-in-chief JOEL MEADOWS was up there and here’s a selection of photos he took at this year’s show…

The fifth LICAF was a show that included as ever a mix of talented independent comic artists, writers and illustrators from all corners of the globe. One of their featured guests was the legendary Sergio Aragones (Mad magazine, Groo) but he was joined by the likes of Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Lynn Johnston (For Better Or Worse), Jason Latour (Southern Bastards), Mark Sexton (Judge Dredd, Mad Max: Fury Road) and many more. British creators like patrons Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), Sean Phillips (Kill Or Be Killed, Criminal) and Bryan Talbot (Grandville, Tale of One Bad Rat) and independent creators like Metaphrog and Ivan Petreus. As a press attendee for the past five years, it is impressive how they have built this up from nothing in half a decade to be a unique and interesting show. There was a major exhibition of Will Eisner art to commemorate his centenary and Phillips created a brand new publication on sale at the show featuring new comic work from the likes of Peter Milligan, Jason Latour and Phillips himself. Here’s a small selection of photos from the show to give people a small flavour…
