Comix: heroes of the revolution

Are comix the lost art form of the 20th century? If, previously, censorship forced comix to maintain an underground position, has their popularisation by Hollywood conversely resulted in a dilution and 'blandification' of the form? Is there a future for comix following the death of hippy culture?

Legendary Texan creator of The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Gilbert Shelton will be making a rare appearance alongside British counterparts Hunt Emerson, creator of Thunderdogs, Firkin the Cat, and Bryan Talbot, creator of Chester P. Hackenbush, Luther Arkwright and the acclaimed Tale of One Bad Rat. In the chair: Dez Skinn, author of COMIX: The Underground Revolution, who has won over 20 Eagle awards during his 30-year career in the industry. Titles he has created include Doctor Who Weekly, Hulk Comic and Warrior.
