Panel from Silver Surfer: In thy name by Simon Spurrier and Tan Eng Huat

As part of a fund raising night to support London radio station Resonance FM, themed around the subject of silver, Alex Fitch will be talking to comic book writer and novelist Simon Spurrier about the Marvel comics character the Silver Surfer, who he penned in a recent mini-series called ‘In Thy Name’.
Alex and Simon will be discussing the character’s origins on and off the page and aspects of space opera and eschatology in his appearances.

Other guests on the night will include representatives of the V&A’s silver collection on the socio-economic and historical role silver played in British Imperialism; the BBC’s central Asia correspondent on the geo-politics of silver; London’s Pétanque society; a panel of art critics discussing Belgian surrealist René Magritte’s portrayal of silver and Mark Pilkinson on silver in relation to contemporary mythology and sci-fi.

N.B./ the London Underground strike should be finished well before the start time, however London Overground & DLR services should be unaffected anyway…
