Hi-Ex in the news

The week before Christmas saw a flurry of activity from the Hi-Ex PR elves.

There was a nice article on BBC on-line news for the highlands featuring Tanya’s lovely poster artwork.

Then a lovely piece on the Forbidden Planet international blog.

and also a mention in the Inverness Courier Friday 23rd December.

Hi-Ex organiser Richmond was interviewed for the annual Forbidden Planet blogs ‘Best of the Year’ series. Many of the lovely comic he mentions will be available at Hi-Ex 2012 and also some of the creators!

The Guardian had an interesting interview with some comic ladies who team Hi-Ex know well and have worked with. It mentions the ‘Bayou Arcana’ project that Hi-Ex’s Vicky is also working on. If you can only make it to one other comic event other that Hi-Ex this year we recommend Thought bubble in Leeds! The debate about equality of gender opportunity in the comics industry and of gender portrayal within comics, is one which will run and run, and that we seek to actively address at Hi-Ex too!
