Rees Finley, editor of Damn Dirty Comics (a UK based independent comics and magazine publisher), will be presenting his most recent work. The Blue Flame: An Autobiography is 4 years in the making, and is a 120+ page autobiographic of Rees Finlay. He makes comics……or at least he used to, following a tragic accident his leg barely works, everyone he ever loved has gone and his passion is lost. Described as somewhere between ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’, The Blue Flame explores love, loss, guilt and what it means to battle your demons.

To celebrate the 1 Year Anniversary of Birmingham Laydeez do Comics next meeting, we published an anthology, themed ‘Hometown’. It is a fantastic read & all proceeds go towards reimbursing artists & guest speakers at future LDC meet ups! Get your copy at http://ldcbrum.bigcartel.com/
