Moore & Reppion at Thought Bubble 2017

Thought Bubble, the best damn comic convention in the UK (no offence to any other cons intended), is almost upon us once again. Can it really be that a year has passed since last we comics folk descended upon the fair city of Leeds to wander its ginnels, drink all its beer, and eat all its pizza? Apparently so.

As usual the line-up for the comic con itself is ludicrously good with a list of exhibitors and guests a mile long.  Everyone will be there, including us, but where exactly will we be?

On SATURDAY 23rd we’ll be signing on the Self Made Hero table (221-223 in the ComiXology Marquee) from 10am until 11:30am.

We will be singing on the 2000AD table (5-6 Leeds Town Hall Marquee) between 1pm and 2pm, then back to the Self Made Hero table from 2:30pm onwards.

On SUNDAY 24th we’ll be taking part in the SelfMadeHero: A Decade of Comics panel (Carriageworks Studio Theatre – Fifth Floor) between 10:30am and 11:20am, we will then be signing on the Self Made Hero table between 11:30am and 12:45pm.

We will be singing on the 2000AD table between 1pm and 2pm, then back to the Self Made Hero table from 2:30pm onwards.


It also gives us great pleasure to reveal that copies of Ghost Stories of an Antiquary Vol 2 will be on sale at the convention, weeks before they arrive in any shops. More on that very soon though.

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.
