The Sculptor - Scott McCloud

SelfMadeHero Announces Scott McCloud UK Tour

For the past two weeks, Scott McCloud’s much lauded The Sculptor has been sitting on my desk, pleading for me to read it.  Every time I see that Neil Gaiman endorsement on the cover (the best graphic novel I’ve read in years.”) I tremble with joy.

Anyway, publisher SelfMadeHero has announced a spate of appearances, signings and talks that McCloud will be doing next month to promote the book. If anyone has anything interesting to say about sequential art, it’s the author of Understanding Comics.

The details are below.
