Sydney Opera House to host a "unique celebration of culture at its coolest"

The Sydney Opera House will host an exciting series of events on 7 and 8 August.

GRAPHIC will look at "comic books, illustration, animation, music, multimedia and other new ways of telling stories [and how they] have not only changed the face of our popular culture, they now define it."

Special guests will include: Neil Gaiman, Kevin Smith, and Gary Groth. "Other highlight events include the Anime classic Akira with a live rescore by Regurgitator; Shaun Tan’s The Arrival live scored by Ben Walsh and the Orkestra of the Underground; and the big one – Neil Gaiman in the Concert Hall reading a new unpublished work, with specially commissioned live score by FourPlay and projected illustrations by legendary graphic artist Eddie Campbell."
