Laydeez Do Comics is a brilliant monthly meeting where ladies and gentlemen talk about comics, with guest speakers and usually cake!

I will be talking about my new comics storytelling card game, Comic Turns, which I will be launching on Kickstarter in the near future. You will have a chance to play the game as well as hear about its development and evolution as I take my foray into the Tabletop Games world.

The evening also features Rebecca Fox talking about her work.

Entry is free but donations are appreciated. Please book in advance.
