Dave Gibbons gives an illustrated lecture on his career, ranging from his schoolboy love of comics through his early years in the business to his later work on 2000AD, Dr Who, Green Lantern, Superman, Batman, Martha Washington and, of course, Watchmen. Along the way, he will touch on his drawing process, the digital revolution in comics, his appointment as Comics Laureate and his hopes for the future of the medium.
