Laydeez do Comics – Dublin

Talking comics in Dublin

2014 Holiday Meeting

Laydeez do Comics - DublinThe fourth meeting of Laydeez do Comics – Dublin, will take place from 2pm – 6pm on Saturday, 29 November, 2014 in the 3rd floor bar of the Odessa Club, 13 Dame Court, Dublin 2.

Since we’re on the cusp of the holiday season we’re offering a bumper meeting, and it’s taking place during the day at the weekend to facilitate as many people as possible who want to travel to the meeting.

Our guests will be C.E. Murphy, Philip Barrett, Maura McHugh, and Paul Bolger.

All welcome!

In the spirit of gift-giving we’re also going to have a comic swap at the meeting: please bring along a comic book, or piece of art, that you would like to exchange with another person at the meeting. We ask creators not to bring their own comic books for exchange. This can be a comic book you have finished reading and would like to distribute, or a case where you own two copies of a comic. Please wrap it (newspaper is fine!) so they can be exchanged blind. If you don’t like what you get you can always try to haggle for a different copy later on.

Please don’t spend money on buying a comic. It’s meant to be a fun, free way of discovering new work and promoting other people’s comics.

The presentations will include:

popC. E. Murphy will discuss putting together her Take a Chance comic book & the art of crowd-funding.

popPhilip Barrett will talk about his career as a comic book artist and small press publisher.

popMaura McHugh will explore the nitty gritty of writing for comics.

popPaul Bolger will talk about his career as an animator and his new comic book project Hound.

There is a suggested donation of €3-5 from everyone attending the meeting to cover the organisers’ costs.

popC.E. Murphy talk – 20 minutes
