Argh! The Ups and Downs of Life as a Comic Book Creator

The Bacon Theatre, Dean Close School, Cheltenham
Thursday 24th March at 7.30pm
Tickets: £10.00 (£8.00)

The Bacon Theatre at Dean Close School will be hosting a fascinating and hilarious evening of comic book history: Argh! The Ups and Downs of Life as a Comic Book Creator, with the highly experienced scriptwriter, editor and illustrator, Tim Quinn, on Thursday 24th March.

For over 30 years Tim Quinn worked for the world’s most famous comic book companies on everything from Bunty, Desperate Dan, and the Bash Street Kids to Spider-Man, The X-Men, Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk. With a lifelong love and encyclopaedic knowledge of comic books, he will take his audience on a humorous and highly nostalgic trip through the last 150 years of comic book history, screening images of the best and the worst strip creations.

Tim will also take his audience behind the editorial scenes at various comic book companies he worked for both in the UK and the US, including the mighty Marvel Comics, showing just how comic book characters are created.

Speaking for the Bacon Theatre, Jess Waterman said: “This promises to be a rare and hugely entertaining opportunity to sneak inside the pages of some of the biggest names in comic book creation. And Tim Quinn is such a vibrant character himself; this should be quite a treat for comic book fans aged 9 to 109!”

Brave audience members are also invited to come along in capes and masks to really get into the spirit of things.

Tickets for this event cost just £10.00 (concessions £8.00). For more information and to book tickets call the Bacon Theatre on 01242 258002 or visit
