This spring sees the arrival of the UK Graphic Novel Expo, Wonderlands to Sunderland city centre.
Held at Sunderland University’s City Space, Wonderlands will celebrate the rising popularity of the graphic novel with exciting panel discussions, guest speakers and interactive workshops.
Unlike other comic conventions, Wonderlands promises to celebrate 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.
In addition to this, Waterstones Sunderland will also be at the event to help promote the increasing popularity of the graphic novel.
