This mini episode was recorded at Laydeez Do Comics Festival 2019, our intern Liv (9) interviewed Sarah Lightman, Wallis Eates and more about the day and their work.
We were invited to the festival to talk about what we look for in new creators and had the opportunity to meet and talk to lots of amazing creators about their work! Laydeez continues to one of the most important and welcoming parts of the UK comics scene and is encouraging truly talented artists and writers to make interesting and challenging comics.
We were really honoured to be a part of the day and we can't wait for next year!
