Hackney Comic and Zine Fest

8th September 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On Sunday 8th September 2019, Hackney Comic + Zine Fair will be taking over London Fields Arches for a celebration of sequential art and the people that produce it. Over 40 artists, writers and publishers will be there, with a huge range of styles, genres and approaches to the comics medium available to purchase.

Presented by London Fields Brewery, it will be a whole day packed full of comics, art and beer. Entry is free, so there is nothing to stop you from coming along, buying some comics, chatting to the creators and having a drink with us.

The aim of the event is to showcase the many different forms and genres that sequential art can take – especially in the independent, self-published and small-press scene. No matter if you’ve never picked up a comic before or if you have boxes full of thousands of them in the spare room at your dad’s house (sorry dad, I swear I’ll move those someday) then with work covering everything from autobiographical travel journals, abstract introspection, sci-fi romance and struggles with mental health, there will be something for you to enjoy at HCZF.

As well as our talented bunch of creators, we’ll be joined by various communities, websites, podcasts and groups that are focused on promoting the medium and spreading their passion about it as far and wide as possible, and we will have drop-in workshops throughout the day for you to try your hand at making comics yourself.

We also have beer. Lots of beer. Drink the beer, please*.
