Moore & Reppion at London Film & Comic Con this weekend

Leah and I will be attending this year’s London Film & Comic Con at Olympia, Hammersmith Road, London, W14 8UX this weekend.

We’ll be there all day Saturday (9 AM until 6 PM) and Sunday until 3 PM.

All the comics folk will be on the 1st floor of the Olympia. Moore & Reppion are on table #11 (next to our Damsels artist Aneke!). If we’re not at our table then here’s where to find us:

Sat

  • Signing (Moore & Reppion)                     11 – 11:45 AM
  • Portfolio reviews (Reppion)                    12 – 12:45 PM
  • 2000 AD panel (Reppion)                         2 – 2:45 PM
  • Heavy Metal panel (Moore)                    3 – 3:45 PM
  • Heavy Metal signing (Moore)                 4 – 4:45 PM

Sun

  • Signing (Moore & Reppion)                    11 – 11:45 AM
  • Portfolio reviews (Moore & Reppion)  12 – 12:45 PM

There is a completely ridiculous line up at this year’s LFCC with guests like Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Smith, Alyson Hannigen, Pamela Anderson, and literally dozens of other proper household names – people your mum and dad have heard of, or the sight of whom would, at very least, make them go “Oh, it’s her off of that thing!”.

If you’re coming along, please do come upstairs and see us comics people. I believe that Rantz Hoseley and the Heavy Metal crew may have some surprise guests in store too…

 

Moore & Reppion 2000AD signing at Manchester Travelling Man, Sat 25th February

2000 AD is to celebrate its birthday weekend in style with signings across the country!

With the massive success of the sold-out 40 Years of Thrill-power Festival in London last weekend and with its actual birthday of 26 February fast approaching, 2000 AD is delighted to announce new signing events in Manchester, Birmingham, and Scotland.

Earthlets who missed out on the historic event in Hammersmith will be able to meet just some of the incredible creators who’ve made 2000 AD the galaxy’s greatest comic.

The perfect tome to launch these celebrations is Thrill-power Overload, a whopping 300+ page hardcover containing the updated official history of 2000 AD, from its earliest days to its current success, from creator clashes to near-cancellation.

On Saturday 18 February, Biggar Library and Scottish independent Bookshop of the Year Atkinson-Pryce will host a Thrill-power Overload signing with artist Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd: America) and former 2000 AD editor David Bishop from 1pm.

Then on Friday 24 February, Waterstones West End in Edinburgh will host Thrill-power Overload authors David Bishop and Karl Stock for a signing at 12.30pm.

At 1pm on Saturday 25 February, signings will take place at the Travelling Man comic book store in Manchester and the Nostalgia and Comics store Birmingham with topflight creators Steve Yeowell (Zenith), Leah Moore (Storm Warning), John Reppion (Storm Warning), Nick Percival (Judge Dredd), Ian Edginton (Scarlet Traces), D’Israeli (Scarlet Traces).

This year the legendary weekly British anthology comic 2000 AD celebrates forty years of innovative, provocative, and original sci-fi, fantasy, and horror action from the cream of comics creators. It has brought the industry some of its biggest talents, from Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Mark Millar, to Jock, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, and many more. Published in print and digital every Wednesday, 2000 AD is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and remains at the industry’s cutting edge.

Black Shuck parts nine and ten in 2000 AD progs 1991 and 1992

2k 1991 2k 1992It’s the school Summer Holidays. That’s my excuse for leaving it this long to post about the climactic parts of Black Shuck series two going on sale. There has been a lot going on.

If you’re a regular reader of 2000 AD, or you picked up these ten issues just for our series, then we really hope you enjoyed the second arc of our Dunwich born, half Viking, were-beast, arse-kicking warrior king’s adventures.

If you haven’t picked them up yet and think that sounds like fun then head over to shop.2000adonline.com and grab the back issues (either digitally, or in printed form).

32I’ve really left it too late to post a script and some pages to be honest, but I can share the wonderful covers uncovered post for Alex Ronald’s fantastic cover for 1992.

Thanks to by Steve Yeowell for all his awesome work on the series, and to Chris Blythe, and Ellie De Ville.

Final two tracks on the Black Shuck 2 soundtrack:

Track 9: Howl Movements I-III by Lazer/Wulf

Track 10: Blood and Thunder by Mastodon

BLACK SHUCK // SINS OF THE FATHER (part seven)
Scandinavia, 815 AD. When the Anglo-Saxon warrior known as BLACK SHUCK washed up at the court of King Ivar, it was discovered he was the monarch’s bastard son, sired during a Viking raid on the town of Dunwich. Shuck successfully aided Ivar in his fight against the monstrous Jötunn, and became king himself. But his bestial curse has been passed on to his unborn sons, and his family will perish unless he seeks help…

Written by us, with pencils and inks by Steve Yeowell, colours by Chris Blythe, and letters by letters by Ellie De Ville.
