We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Bryan Talbot in Preston This Weekend

Top comics creator Bryan Talbot is paying a visit in Preston on Saturday night (28th March) at 8.00pm at The Continental pub.

"It’ll be a bit like one of the old SF group meetings," says Bryan, referring to Preston's popular SF community meetings of the past.

Bryan will be talking about his pioneering work in comics and graphic novels, focusing on his hit graphic novel One Bad Rat. The talk is part of The Continental’s regular series of lectures and talks on controversial, topical and fascinating subjects and Bryan will also be launching an exhibition of his work in the snug.

• Admission to the event is just £3. The Continental Pub is in South Meadow Lane, Preston. Telephone: 01772 499425. Web Site:
