Wonderlands the UK Graphic Novel Expo

Wonderlands the UK Graphic Novel Expo
Saturday, May 30, 2015

Wonderlands is part of the 'Alice is 150' celebrations in Sunderland and South Tyneside recognising the 150th anniversary of the publication of 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll.

Unlike other comic conventions, Wonderlands promises to promote comics in their book form, exhibiting a plethora of well known authors and publishers throughout the day. It will consist of a publisher's hall, representing the full range, from large, well-established firms to small press. There will be a single programme of talks and panel discussions from leading authors in the field of graphic novels which will run parallel with a series of workshops and masterclasses.
