Thanks to the Sasakawa Foundation this years British International Comics Show is proud to announce the award winning Japanese manga artist Michiru Morikawa as their latest overseas guest.
Known for her singular style of art that merges children’s illustration with manga Michiru will be helping to launch the new book “Buskers” drawn by her, written by Sean Michael Wilson and published by Insomnia Publications.
The artist is reported to be “very excited” about visiting Birmingham, as she lived there earlier in her career and never expected to have the opportunity to visit her favourite British city again so soon.
In addition to overseas guests BICS will be increasing other multi cultural elements of the show including a special panel hosted by comics historian and writer Paul Gravett called “Found In Translation” that helps readers to discover translated works form all over the world that they may not previously have encountered.
These include graphic novels and comics from France, Spain, Japan and Germany.

Another recent addition to the guest list is Angel artist Stephen Mooney who will be available for signings all weekend.
