I am hitting a lot of conventions this year… I think by the end of 2013 this will have been my busiest convention tour ever. So I thought I’d give you all a nice heads-up in case I’m coming to a town near you. It’d be ace to be able to say hi to anyone who reads my ramblings online or who has supported me in any way over the years.
Not only that, but this is a year of exciting new things coming out of nichangell comix towers! so I will mark on when you can expect to see the release of a new nichangell comix product, so I can get the hype flowing, (both for you AND for me!) Everyone likes a good deadline, particularly in this business!
So here we go, this is the future, laid out for you:
London MCM – 25-26 May – RELEASE: WARP-RUNNING QUANTUM DRIVE STARHEROES – the illustration and comic art of nichangell – delux 40 page artbook collecting concept work, prints, fanarts and doodles and any other bits I thought you might like!
Manchester MCM – 20th July
Melksham Comiccon – 31st August – RELEASE: The Heavenly Chord Pt 1 – an astonishingly epic crossover of my comic 7STRING with the amazing Afterlife Inc by Jon Lock (www.jonlock.com) See the post below this one for all the details on the crossover event of the summer!
RELEASE: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTED CAT AND MERINGUE TOME – (expect a better name than that) a collection of every single Cat and Meringue strip over its nearly 3 year webcomic life. Thats 1000 strips. Chart their adventures in the greatest on-the-loo book ever printed.
