BOOK 2
Another in the series of confessions books by our resident artist Iman Kakai-Lazell this time collaborating with TIM QUINN...

Tim He has lived in Indiana, worked with members of the Rolling Stones, commissioned work from Stan Lee, edited & written for Marvel Comics and created a unique Doctor Who comic strip.

Tim Quinn was born in Liverpool in 1953, the very same year Beryl the Peril first appeared in The Topper. Coincidence? We think not! Educated by Irish Christian Brothers whose prospectus boasted, ‘We will instill a fear of God into your child’, it was little wonder Tim chose a life in entertainment.

Starting his career as a clown at Blackpool Tower Circus he then leapt back in time to work on BBC TV’s Good Old Days music hall series where he started writing scripts for top comedians. It was a small jump into the world of comic books where he spent many happy years as scriptwriter, illustrator and editor on such noted titles as The Beano, The Dandy, Sparky, The Topper, Buster, Whoopee!, Bunty, Jackie, Dr Who Magazine, and Whizzer & Chips before heading Stateside to work for the mighty Marvel Comics Group on the world famous Spider-Man, X-Men and the Incredible Hulk.

Tim has also worked as a writer for the Guardian newspaper, editor for America’s oldest publication The Saturday Evening Post and producer for LWT’s The South Bank Show (amongst others producing a show on the history of Marvel Comics!).

Today he is on a lecture tour of the UK discussing the humour and nostalgia of comics, runs a management company for recording artists, conducts workshops on cartooning and literacy, creates way too many charitable projects, and dreams of the day he will be bitten by a radioactive giraffe so that he can finally take over the universe.

This book brings together a collection of works that push the boundaries of what we consider as a book.
with varied elements coming together to create a voyage of deconstructing and reconstructing of photos and IKL will be signing these alongside Tim at this years Comic-Con in Liverpool on the 13th and 14th November 2021 - preorder your copy signed from either our bandcamp or come and meet them both in November...
