Manga fans wanting to know more about the history of sequential art will be pleased to hear about Helen McCarthy's A Brief History of Manga Talk.

The talk is set to run in London at the Cartoon Museum from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Tuesday 4th November 2014. The event is free, but as always we advise booking to avoid disappointment.

Please e-mail shop@cartoonmuseum.org or call 0207 580 8155 to book a ticket.

A Brief History of Manga

4 November 6.30 - 7.30 pm

FREE but space limited so booking essential.

Helen McCarthy talks about her new book, inspired by a charity event after the Great East Japan earthquake in 2011. A Brief History of Manga does exactly what it says on the small but perfectly formed cover - takes you on a whirlwind tour of this cultural smorgasbord's surprisingly cosmopolitan history. From an Englishman, a Frenchman and an Aussie on a gap year to the Benedict Cumberbatch version of Japan's fascination with Sherlock Holmes (and yes, that's the right word order,) the journey of manga is a ride packed with thrills, spills and surprises, especially when you zoom through all 150 years at a breakneck pace with no seatbelt. Don't miss it.

Ticket holders can also visit the Cartoon Museum exhibition Gekiga: Alternative Manga from Japan for the special price of 2

Doors open 6pm.

In association with Comica Festival.
