Greg Rucka, Michael Lark Go Virtual for Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2021
(Rucka, Michael Lark diventano virtuali per il Lakes Festival 2021 )
Kendal, Tuesday 28th July 2021:
Two international guests of the Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2021 will now be making exclusive virtual appearances over its weekend of comic panels, workshops, exhibitions and much more in October, in Kendal, Cumbria.
American comic writer Greg Rucka has, regrettably, had to cancel his physical visit to the UK, and the Lakes International Comic Art Festival (15th – 17th October) but will still be making a virtual appearance at the weekend-long event in Kendal, Cumbria.
The cancellation is due to personal circumstances, which mean he has some concerns about long distance travel at this time, which would potentially impact his family.
“I was genuinely looking forward to attending the show,” says Greg. “I love visiting England, and Michael Lark has spoken so effusively about you and the Festival that I was beyond excited at the thought of being able to visit a part of the country new to me, and to meet such wonderful and generous people.
“My sincerest hope is that I will be able to attend in 2022.”
American comic artist Michael Lark has also, had to cancel his appearance at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival this year, due to uncertainty caused by continued surges in cases of COVID, especially the Delta variant.
“A 10-day quarantine would be the worst outcome,” he says.
Because flights have to be booked now, he and his wife, Keli, have opted to err on the side of caution this year – but hope to contribute to the weekend-long event in other ways.
“We are, needless to say, very disappointed about this,” says Michael. “We definitely want to continue to be a part of the Festival, so if there is anything we can to help and participate from here, we would of course be happy to do so.”
“It just doesn’t seem to make sense to be travelling internationally, at least not yet.”
Greg and Michael will now be taking part in one of a number of exclusive international video presentations that will feature as part of this year’s Festival. This part of the hybrid programme will also include Sweet Tooth artist Jeff Lemire, who also hopes to be at the Festival in 2022 but is unable to attend this year due to a revised filming schedule.
