Event 114

Jim Broadbent and Dix

Dull Margaret

Venue: Oxfam Moot

Inspired by Dulle Griet (aka Mad Meg), Pieter Bruegel's 16th century painting of a "strong, intense woman striding determinedly across a violent landscape", Dull Margaret is the first graphic novel by Academy award-winning-actor Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) and artist Dix (best known for his comics in the Guardian). The Dulle Griet painting shows a breastplated woman with a sword in one hand in front of the mouth of hell. Broadbent uses that single, vivid image as a launching point to explore what the rest of Dull Margaret’s bleak existence may have been like. Chaired by Georgina Godwin.
