The next meeting for the SW2 Readers will be on the 11th May from 19:30 onwards to discuss autobiographical comics.
The reading group is inviting london library members to bring an autobiographical graphic novel and their thoughts on it to the meeting.
Our Cancer Year is a good example as is Maus. Although Maus and American Splendour has already been chosen. To avoid confusion please post at lambeth_comics of your choice of autobiographical graphic novel.

Orbital Comics will be hosting a manga event on this coming Satuday, 26 April. This should be of special interest to comic and manga fans as Dimensional Manga, a british manga publishing company with Orbital's help is promoting the new graphic manga novel, 'Demon Prince: Children Of Gaia'.
Went to a stand up gig in an over-priced pub in Colliers Wood last Thursday night, 12 March,
Every time I go there the comics go on about what a rough neighbourhood Colliers Wood is. It isn't at all. Oh, there was that 'queue rage' incident in the Colliers Wood Sainsbury's where an incomer got punched to death by a local. But Colliers Wood is no more dangerous than any other part of South London. Yes, I can say that with a straight face.
There are a substantial amount of chavs in Colliers Wood so I can see why visitors might think the area is a little dodgy but the area of South London I live in is much more dangerous. Not that I have any problems... I allways wear running shoes and shout "I have no money!". Although I find "Jesus loves you!" with an insanely beatific smile is more effective.
From London's influence on the young Charles Darwin to the effect of Darwinian theory on the reshaping of the city, this day of talks will offer an entertaining and enlightening insight into the relationship between man and metropolis. Leading experts in social history, evolutionary biology and the history of science will explore the places, people and institutions in London which were important to Darwin's work, as well the effect of Darwin’s theory on the lives of Londoners.
