Description

Join David A. Robertson as he talks storytelling with two of his graphic novelist peers. Nick Craine will reminisce about Hard Core Logo: Portrait of A Thousand Punks, the twentieth anniversary reissue of his comic based on the feature film by Bruce McDonald and the novel by Michael Turner. Sam Hester will show and discuss her work from RESIST! Volume 2! the free political comic book created after the November 2016 USA election.

Hard Core Logo: Portrait of A Thousand Punks (Nick Craine)

Joe Dick coaxes his former bandmates to overcome personal differences and reunite for a benefit concert for their ageing punk mentor, Bucky Haight, who has been shot. But the concert’s not enough for Joe; he wants the band to hit the road again. For the Hard Cores this means the beginning of the end, and they come to realize that they can neither relive nor alter the past. From the pen of hugely talented Craine comes a searing rendition of those Hard Core days and nights. Read more...
