  • Comics Workshop For Parents and Children

    The Workshops consist of Tutorial demonstrations, delivered by UK graphic novelist, comic artist and writer, Tim Perkins, on the flip chart. The students will be encouraged to join in and ask questions all throughout the sessions.

    Parents are also encouraged to participate.

    Indeed children of ALL AGES are encouraged to come along and take part in the now yearly event at MaltaComicCon’s wonderful workshops.

    The whole premise is one of taking part and having lots of fun, whilst learning basic, easy to understand drawing techniques and as a result gaining in confidence.

    Based on his teaching methods within UK primary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities, as well as his own Fantasy Art Unlimited course and following on from his trip to Malta earlier in the year teaching comic art and storytelling techniques, Tim will always get results from even the most timid of students.

    Cost: It’s absolutely FREE – Yes, you heard right – FREE!!!

    Are you someone who enjoys writing fan fiction?
    What if the creation and enjoyment of narratives could be a more interactive and social activity?
    If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then pen and paper roleplaying might be just the thing for you. Join Christianne and Heathcliff from W.A.R.S. who will explain the process of taking part in and creating a campaign.

  • Of Imaginary Tigers and Philosophical Cavemen: The art and technique of the humourous comic strip - A talk by Dr. Gorg Mallia

    The humourous comic strip has been around since the inception of the comic genre. The gag cartoon strip is often just a joke, building up to the inevitable anti-climax. But a lot of creators have managed to use this comics sub-genre to come up with characters that are much deeper than the jokes that under-run their series, showing deep psychological and social insights, while still producing funny pictures that talk to young and old alike. This talk draws examples from, among others, the work of Americans Watterson, Shulz, Unger, Hart and Young, and Nowegian Myhre, Englishmen Smythe, Watkins and Baxendale, Swedish Cronstam, Italian Bonvicini (and lots of others) to explore the mechanics of gag strip (and funny comic book) techniques and conventions, also looking at cartooning styles and rendering approaches. The idea is to understand the sub-genre better … and to laugh out loud as often as possible.

  • Worlds End – Creating a New Mythology

    The talk is accompanied by a short video followed by a slide show and features the artistic and literary influences of creator, graphic novelist, Tim Perkins and the route he took to get from “wannabe comic creator,” through his time as a professional artist and writer for comics, children’s books, themed attractions and rides and animation, to become the publisher of his own books.

    Also discussed throughout are Tim’s production methods used in the past and the present and how the materials, if not the techniques, have changed during that time.

    At the end of the talk, Tim offers an opportunity to ask questions.

    Delivered in a light-hearted, yet still serious, vein the talk has both entertained and inspired the audiences back in his native country of England.

    The talk will be followed by signings of his graphic novel, etc at the Wizards Keep Table.

  • The Girl With All the Gifts: A Reading and a Q&A by Mike Carey

    Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her 'our little genius'. Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favourite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad. THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is a terrible, wonderful, heart-breaking story about hope and humanity and a little girl who tries to save the world.
