The inaugural meeting of Laydeez Do Comics Dublin, which I announced a couple of weeks ago, was on Wednesday night and it was a roaring success! You can see photos and read a report of the event here and Róisín Curé drew throughout the evening to produce this charming illustrated account.
Thanks to engaging presentations by Sarah McIntyre, Alan Nolan, and Maeve Clancy, this also turned out to be a really well-rounded event that had something to offer not just people interested in working in comics but fans of the form as well as creatives in most professions. We were also fortunate to have a delightful audience and a great venue, the fabulous Odessa Club. And C.E. Murphy brought the most amazing ginger snap cookies I’ve ever had the good fortune to taste, so really, what more could we have asked for?
We’ll be arranging another meeting in a few months’ time, probably in September, so watch the skies! Well, and the internet.
