If you thought making comics was just about drawing funny pictures, with people wearing their underpants over their tights, you thought WRONG!

The art of creating comics also has a science to it – from panel layouts to sequential storytelling and learning (and breaking!) the rules of how a comic strip is created. And there is nobody better placed to explain how it all works than local cartoonist Marc Jackson.

Marc is the creator of ‘Lenny the Lettuce’ and ‘Dawgtective’ for Beano, as well as self-published titles such as Here Comes Cat Stevens! and Robo Hats. He’s also the organiser of the yearly Macc-Pow! comics con in Macclesfield.

In this 1-hour talk, you’ll learn all about the science of this fascinating and fantastic medium – in a fun, and lively way!
