New York Comic Con (8-10 October)
Not doing anything official at this point in time (my panel was bumped by Reed Exhibitions for some reason) but I'll be around on all three days so drop me a line here before the 6 Oct. if you want to meet up.
British International Comic Show (16-17 October)
I'm chairing a panel, Brit Pack, on the state of the British comics industry on Saturday 16 Oct. at 1pm with John Freeman (editor of the forthcoming Strip Magazine) and many others. Then, at 5pm, I'll be a team captain again on HAVE I GOT COMIC BOOK NEWS FOR YOU versus my old nemesis, Tony Lee. Making up the teams will be: Dave Gibbons, Staz Johnson, Mark Farmer and Pornsak Pichetshote, but I've no idea who's on my side, but I'm putting dibs on Dave and Staz!! Last year we won, thanks to an outstanding performance by the irrepressible Howard Chaykin. He was a star and a half! The Comic Book Alliance will also have a stand there so pop on by and buy one of our new T-Shirts. Go on, you know you want to, it's for charity, mate!
Thought Bubble (20 November)
Having been to last year's event, I was very impressed and so I'm returning this year for the one day event. The Comic Book Alliance will have a table there with lots of exciting news about our charity auction and forthcoming publications.
Of course, I'll also be at all these events with my Ilex Commissioning Editor's hat on, so if you have a hot concept for a non-fiction book or concept based on comics, art, movies, music or any aspect of pop culture or crafts, grab me for a chat!
Hope to see you there!
