Birmingham Comics Festival

Sorry to leave this until the last minute, but I will be at the Birmingham Comics Festival which takes place at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground tomorrow.

I'll be doing the usual signing & sketching, & appearing on a couple of panels where I will regale anyone who care to listen with my legendary wit & astounding intelligence, not to mention my modesty. That is to say, I will be responding to any questions with one of my three stock answers:-

1 ."Let me answer that question this way".. after which I go on to talk about whatever the hell I want.

2. "What I think you're trying to ask me is..." after which I go on to talk about whatever the hell I want.

3. "Before I answer that, can I just say...." after which, I go on to talk about whatever the hell I want.

For those interested, sketches will be charged at the (convention only) rate of £35-.

Here's a link to an interview I did with Paul H. Birch to help promote the show.

Hope to see some of you there.

Recent arrivals

A couple of intriguing things have arrived over the last couple of days. Firstly, this little beaut from DC Comics/Dark Horse.

Many moons ago I pencilled a series for DC called Batman/Aliens 2. Long since out of print, & copies of the collection on Ebay were fetching prices in the £40-£50 price range. However, fortunately, if there's still anyone out there who fancies reading it, it's now been made available in a new volume from DC which also features the original Batman/Aliens by Ron Marz & Bernie Wrightson alongside other tales which pit the Aliens up against various DC heroes.

Then this morning I received these two. Firstly, there is the second issue of the series I did recently for Dark Horse.. King's Road. And secondly, this Civil War collection, which contains  a thing I did for Marvel called War Crimes (or "what I did during the Civil War" by The Kingpin).

All three available form your comics retailer now... presumably.
