Recently, we were delighted to play host to Joan Armatrading when the singer/songwriter chose our shop as the venue for her interview with the Financial Times about her love of comics. Joan is a big fan of traditional British comics (particularly the humour style exemplified by the Beano and the Dandy) and once actually appeared as a character in the Beano herself! We had a great afternoon listening to Joan enthusing about comics and were able to engage with her on our shared respect for the medium. She’s a genuine, unpretentious person and it was truly a thrill to have her in our humble emporium! You can read the full FT interview with her here (or by searching Joan Armatrading Financial Times).
