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.

Full signing details:

Colin MacNeil, David Bishop – Biggar Library, Biggar, Scotland , 1pm

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:

A week late again. This time due to busy times and a scanner that refuses to work. Apologies.

Firstly, Scarlet Traces is back in this Prog! Edginton and D’Israeli’s post War of the Worlds Universe hits the 1960s, and I for one am very excited about it.

I missed a week.

Or, more accurately, we lost a week because of all the truly dreadful, horrible, stuff that’s going on in the UK right now.

Dredd’s 21st century dystopia is starting to look like a nicer place to live than our own, but enough of that.

BRIT-CIT NOIR

THE BRITISH EQUIVALENT OF MEGA-CITY ONE, BRIT-CIT IS A SPRAWLING METROPOLIS THAT COVERS ALL OF SOUTHERN ENGLAND, and governs several territories, including Cal-Hab and the South Welsh Peninsula. Brit-Cit suffers from many of the same problems as other Mega-Cities, but is also a focal point for an abundance of weird, occult occurrences.

STRANGE & DARKE – NEW BLOOD

Detective Inspector Jericho Strange heads up the Endangered Species Squad – a unit within the Brit-Cit Justice Department charged with investigating these arcane cases. Partnered with Psi-Judge Bekky Darke, Strange’s exposure to a supernatural artefact called the ‘Black Mirror’ has left him with a face you will never forget…

STORM WARNING – THE RELIC

Lillian Storm is a psychically powerful Judge in the Brit-Cit Justice Department’s Psi-Division. Unfortunately, her abilities are just as much a curse as they are a talent. Can she keep her power in check whilst trying to retrieve a deadly relic and stop an ancient hex which plagues the land?

THIS VOLUME INCLUDES THE STORIES:

Strange & Darke: New Blood (Judge Dredd Megazine 319-323)

Storm Warning: The Relic (Judge Dredd Megazine 361-366)

This month’s instalment is a bit of a change of pace with a little Aliens and [REC] thrown into the mix. And when will people learn that Judge Storm doesn’t do touching?
