Brewery Arts Centre, Studio Theatre

Via a slide show, Bobby will look at the representation of BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic) characters in comics from the early days of comic books through to the redefinition in the modern age of comics via BAME comic book creators.

He will look at negative racial interpretation of characters, through to the revolution that was the Black Panther movie and the inclusion of BAME comic writers and artists in mainstream comics.
