Paul Gravett is a London-based freelance journalist, curator, lecturer, writer and broadcaster, who has worked in comics publishing and promotion for over twenty years.
In the early 1980s he manned the Fast Fiction table at the bi-monthly Saturday comic marts held in London's Westminster Hall, inviting anybody to sell their homemade comics from it, with all proceeds going to the creator. This role earned him the tag Man At The Crossroads from Eddie Campbell in his graphic novel Alec: How To Be An Artist, "He will be the purest, most fresh-faced wee fellow you have ever met. His ingenuous enthusiasm will beam from his cheery countenance."
He will be delivering a talk on the exhibition Cult Fiction: Art & Comics, then walk the group around the gallery.
Tickets are free, but extremely limited and must be booked in advance, either by ringing 0115 915 3651 or from Page 45 by ringing 0115 950 8045 or visiting the shop.
