We are absolutely delighted to announce that the one an only Dave Gibbons has confirmed as our special guest at the ICE Summer Special Event in Brighton.
Dave Gibbons established himself in underground comics and fanzines in Britain before becoming a frequent contributor to the seminal 2000AD, illustrating HARLEM HEROES, DAN DARE and co-creating ROGUE TROOPER.
Since then, he has drawn and written for most comics publishers on both sides of the Atlantic. His work has encompassed DR WHO, SUPERMAN, BATMAN, GREEN LANTERN, CAPTAIN AMERICA, DR STRANGE, THE HULK, PREDATOR and ALIENS. With writer Frank Miller he co-created GIVE ME LIBERTY and MARTHA WASHINGTON GOES TO WAR.
WATCHMEN, his collaboration with writer Alan Moore, is the best-selling graphic novel ever published and became a major motion picture. His autobiographical graphic novel THE ORIGINALS won an Eisner Award in 2005. His recent work has included KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, with Mark Millar.
He is a creative consultant for the MADEFIRE motion books app and an Advisory Board member for MAGIC LEAP technology.
He was appointed “Comics Laureate” in 2014, with the brief to develop the use of comics in education and, in 2015, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Dundee.
This year at ICE Dave will be taking part in an exclusive interview for fans and aspiring comic creators.
