ICE Birmingham Indy Spotlight 2018 is Benjamin Dickson!


Every show we like to shine the spotlight on a hard working new Indy creator and invite them to attend the show as our guest. Not only are we delighted to welcome Graphic Novelist Benjamin Dickson as our Indy Spotlight Guest, but but we are thrilled to be hosting the launch of his new book “A New Jerusalem”

Benjamin Dickson is a writer, artist and lecturer whose previous works include Fight the Power! (with Sean Michael Wilson et al), and Santa Claus vs the Nazis (with Gavin Mitchell).

His newest graphic novel, A New Jerusalem, is a sensitively-observed story about trauma and family life in the aftermath of the Second World War.

Benjamin has had many short stories published in Britain, America and Germany, and has also co-produced several freely available graphic novels on the subject of Climate Change. He has done extensive arts-based charity work with vulnerable adults, including survivors of domestic abuse and PTSD, and believes art to be the greatest of all therapeutic practices. He lives and works in Bristol.
