Comics are a fascinating art form

Compelling to pick up and read they suck you into a fantastical universe populated by super heroes, crime fighters and out of this world creatures.

The wonderful world of comic art descends on Kendal this weekend (Friday-Sunday, October 12-14) in the Lakes International Comic Art Festival with more than 70 of the best comic artists, writers and creators in the line-up.

Epic, pretty much sums up the volley of goings on featured in this year's event, which takes over the Brewery Arts Centre and several other venues across town.
