24 Hour Comics Day 2010

Well, 24 Hour Comics Day happened. Drawing from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday, to create a self-contained, 24 page comic. Stephen Downey already has his scanned and online at Tales of the…, and Andy Luke has posted a report. The Forgotten Pelmet are covering it too.

This year I decided to challenge myself by working in colour. The result is a 24 page children’s story called “Rise at Sundown”, which will be going online as soon as I’ve got it scanned. In the meantime, here’s the cover.

Rise at Sunset cover

I’ve managed to post this week’s page of The Cattle Raid of Cooley on time by the simple expedient of drawing it last week when my brain and drawing hand were still functioning.

Summer Schedule

Last weekend Kyle Rogers (Fyshbowl Comics) and I had a last minute table at the Bristol Small Press Expo. A few more engagements this summer:

  • Next weekend is the 2D Comics Festival in Derry-Stroke-Londonderry. I’ve been the last two and they were great.  And Pat Mills is going to be there! Hopefully he’s forgotten that business about the Sláine story for the first issue of Zarjaz when he hadn’t given permission for his characters to be used, that was a long time ago…
  • Weekend after that, 12 June is the Point Village Comics Festival in Dublin. Brand new event, never been done before.
  • 24 July is the second annual Summer Edition comic, zine and artist’s book fair at Filmbase in Temple Bar, Dublin. Did that one last year and it was really good.

Off to Bristol

I’m pretty sure I’ve got everything, but I’m bound to have forgotten something vitally important. Ah well. Too late if I have. I’m about to set out to the airport to attend the Bristol Comics Expo. Last minute cancellation by Al Nolan and Bridgeen Gillespie meant a table was up for grabs, so it’ll be me and Kyle Rogers now. Would we take their graves as quick? So if you’re going, stop by and say hi.

Black Books this Sunday

For my readers in and around Belfast, don’t forget the Black Panel, Andy’s and my stall selling Irish-produced small press comics, will be at the Black Books book fair this Sunday, at the Black Box on Hill Street in the Cathedral Quarter. Here’s Andy’s write-up of the last one on Alltern-8, and a photo of me behind the stall I’ve stolen from said write-up, showing some of the variety of marvellous comics we have on sale.
