Okay, so I can finally confirm that I will be attending the Lakes International Comic Art Festival next month (17-19th October). This will be my first comic event appearance in an official capacity in a couple of years or so, and I will be signing copies of Meanwhile…#1 at the Soaring Penguin table in the Comics Clock Tower at certain times over the weekend.
I expect there’ll also be copies of the three Strangehaven trade paperbacks for sale. I may even have some original art with me, but Kendal is a long train ride from Leigh-on-Sea, so it might depend on how my shoulder’s feeling the morning of travel.
I was invited by Bryan Talbot during its inaugural event last year, but it seemed like a waste with nothing to promote, but the timing couldn’t be more perfect this year, with the launch of the new Meanwhile… and all of its Strangehaven goodness therein.
The Lakes has announced a really diverse and eclectic mix of guests including Jeff Smith, Scott McCloud and Joost Swarte, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how it matches up to its rapidly growing reputation.
