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.

Glasgow ComicCon 2014 Report.

The last time we stayed away over night was last years Thought Bubble. I don’t know if I can explain how excited we were to be off to Glasgow. Neither of us had ever been, but as soon as we arrived we felt at home. Possibly it was all the big sandstone buildings but we relaxed straight away.

Our table overlooked the bar, and was near to long time convention pals AccentUK who we snagged four volumes of Western Noir from. Four volumes! It has been a while since we’ve seen them but wow.

We signed and sold and pulled faces at Gail Simone and That Guy Scott across the way, until four, when we had a panel with the lovely Rufus Dayglo, and the mighty Howard Chaykin. We were discussing characters, and how you build them, how you bring them to life, but to be honest we all wavered from the point a fair bit. There were a few salient points to glean from the discussion:

1. Comic Creators are irregularly employed and paid. As much as we all wish we had long hours to create magical worlds, quite often we just have to get something thought up that afternoon. We still really care, and love our job, but it’s actually more on a knife-edge than anybody really admits to.

2. Drawing the Nesquik bunny makes you morally bankrupt right off the bat.

3. Howard Chaykin does not give one single dry miniscule fuck. An invigorating co-panellist.

Once we extricated ourselves from the gym-shoe-like furnace of the panels theatre, we packed up and went for food. Cocktail&Burger had really nice food, really nice staff, and cool library wallpaper.

We went back to the hotel to change and drink coffee and Sit Still Without Children which was heavenly and then we went in search of two things. People and Beer.

We found Stacey Whittle and Alex Ronald in Cocktail&Burger, and she alerted us to the cheaper beer 2mins down the road. Also, the music had started, leaving us all cupping one ear and shouting at one another like a geriatric away day. We walked back up to the CCA and had a beer on the terrace, before magically summoning lovely people with Twitter. Emma Vieceli  (who gave us a copy of her Breaks prologue, which is stunning as one might expect!) Gary Erskine, Mhairi Stewart, and Hannah Berry all arrived like a cheery mob of awesome, and we moved downstairs away from noise and people so we could talk and catch up.

We had a wonderful evening, and stumble bumbled off back to Novotel.

We actually enjoyed having small hangovers because NO CHILDREN, and we especially liked breakfast. Hannah showed me the wonder that is the Automatic Pancake Machine and I ate tiny cakes. It was beautiful!

We had a bit of time before our signing slot, so we went and found Gary Erskine’s table and bought three amazing Roller Grrrls prints and a sketch book, Yishan Li was sat next to him so we got a print from her, and then a book from Hannah. We cast longing glances at Rufus Dayglo’s table but as per usual he had a queue a mile long, and we had to run away. We actually managed to scoot through the dealer’s room on our way downstairs and made it for our signing.

We saw so many adorable cosplayers, including tiny-little-girl-hulk a whole family of Green Lanterns, a baby ewok with his Luke and Leia siblings, Batgirl on her mobile, big Finn from Adventure Time, and lots of characters we are just not cool enough to recognise.

We sold and signed and then said our goodbyes, and walked back down Sauchiehall Street in the sunshine.

Would we go again? Definitely. Would we recommend it to you? Hells Yeah.

Bring on GCC2015!

Thought Bubble 2010 this weekend

Thought Bubble – the fantastic one day comic convention held annually in Leeds – is happening this Saturday.

The legendary Bryan Talbot will be launching his new book Grandville Mon Amour (the follow up to 2009’s steampunk badger cop masterpiece Grandville), the likes of  John “Kick Ass” Romita Jr., Adi “Iron Man” Granov, Paul “Action Comics” Cornell, Leigh “Defoe” Gallagher, Emma “Manga Shakespeare” Vieceli, Ian “Sherlock Holmes” Culbard, and lots, lots, lots more will be signing, sketching, selling and giving talks, workshops and (again) lots more.

We will also be there signing and (hopefully) selling copies of The Complete Dracula, The Trial of Sherlock Holmes, The Complete Alice in Wonderland and anything else of ours we can lay our hands on in time (if any nice, kind hearted, retailers attending the event would be willing to flog us some books on the day at trade price that would be very handy and very much appreciated – please do shoot us an email if you can help we now have loads of books thanks to the lovely peeps at Travelling Man – bring money!!!).

This will be our only con appearance this year so, if you’ve got any Moore & Reppion bits and bobs you’d like us to sign, then Thought Bubble is the place to catch us.

Sadly, we won’t be hanging round for the after-party so we’ll be running round and round all day trying to catch up with as many people as possible and grab as many comics as we can. We will, however, do our very best to keep our twitter feeds updated throughout the day so, if we’re not sat behind our table, you should be able to find out exactly where we are by checking http://twitter.com/leahmoore and (probably to a significantly lesser extent due to my phone being crap) http://twitter.com/johnreppion

Thought Bubble is always a brilliant day – probably our favourite convention, actually – and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
