From Leigh to Leeds


After two false starts in recent years, I'm finally attending Leeds' Thought Bubble comics festival at the weekend, 19-20th November.

I'll have a table in Saviles Hall, alongside my long-time pal Chris Staros with his latest Top Shelf line of books. It's the first event at which I've exhibited for way, way too long, and I'll have with me a limited number of Alan Moore Storyteller, Comic Book Design, Draw Dragons, Draw Fantasy Figures, plus all three Strangehaven volumes and the Spirit of Hope benefit anthology among other bits and pieces. I'll also have some original artwork for sale.

On Sunday at 1:00PM at the Alea Cinema Room, I will be interviewed by Tim Pilcher about Alan Moore Storyteller, and joining me on stage will be Moore's musical collaborator Gary Lloyd and Moore uber-fan Pádraig Ó Méalóid, both of who were invaluably helpful in putting my book together, so this promises to be a lively hour.

Thought Bubble has received rave reviews in preceding years, and I'm very much looking forward to sampling the atmosphere for myself. For more details, check out their website here.
