A number of South African comics creators are appearing on two panels at the 6th annual Kingsmead Book Fair in Johannesburg. Unfortunately the two panels are scheduled against each other so attendees will have to pick one and miss the other.

Festival: Kingsmead Book Fair, Johannesburg

They are as follows:

Unbound Imaginations
16:15 to 17:00, Learning Centre
Frank Owen aka Diane Awerbuck and Alex Latimer (South), Sam Wilson (Zodiac) and Tammy Baikie (Selling Lip Service), open up on writing speculative fiction with Bontle Senne (The Powers Of The Knife).

Alternate Worlds
16:15 to 17:00, De Villiers Block
Graphic novels are growing in popularity in South Africa, with fans drawn to fantastical settings and sharp stories. Lauren Beukes (Fairest), Loyiso Mkize (Kwezi) and Alan Knott-Craig (So You Want To Be A Hero), let their imaginations run free with Blaque Magazine's Monwabisi Thethe.
