Next up on my 2017 travels… RETCON. Myself and writer/artist Nick Roche will be attending the Nordic Transformers convention in Helsingborg, Sweden – on Saturday 29th April. This will be my third Scandi-flavoured Tranformers convention and – based on the warm reception at the last two – I’m really looking forward to meeting the fans, all of whom have such a passion for the robots in disguise. As well as signing and chatting, Nick and I will be doing our behind-the-scenes ‘crafting Transformers’ talk, which also includes a gallery of rare/unseen art from the end of Dreamwave and the early days of IDW. And I’ll be bringing a stack of Regeneration One script/comic packs for sale at the event. Hope to see you there!
I’ll be appearing at the Medway Comic & Screen Festival (in Gillingham, Kent) on Saturday April 1st (seriously… no I’m not fooling, I’ll be there… honest!). I’ll be bringing along my usual trolley load of signed books, comics, script/comic packs and more, plus something very exciting on the TO THE DEATH front to show off. If you’re collecting the Transformers: Definitive G1 Collection series http://www.transformerscollection.com, now’s the perfect opportunity to get your first few books signed. http://www.mcsf.co.uk/home.html
TO THE DEATH Episode 18, “Tooth and Claw” is now LIVE and available to download/view – worldwide. The tumultuous saga of one man against the corporate system comes to its shattering climax – a giant-sized finale that will rock your world and blow the socks right off your feet. No amount of spectacle has been spared, no amount of superlative can do it justice – just go crazy and indulge in the kind of mayhem they used to do in comics, back in the good old days! From Simon Furman and Geoff Senior – as if you didn’t know! http://to-the-death.com/episodes/
The end is nigh, as To The Death Episode 16, “The End of the World As We Know It”, goes LIVE and available to download/view WORLDWIDE. What can we say, except OMG. Bloody and downright vicious doesn’t quite cover it. Dryagin and White Noise vs The Dolmen, Scourge Unit vs Killatoa. The bodies… start to pile up. Inevitably, Simon Furman and Geoff Senior did all the dirty work. http://to-the-death.com/episodes/
The TO THE DEATH roadshow hits the road for the first time in 2017, with both myself and Geoff Senior guests at the Banbury Comic, Film and TV Convention on Saturday January 28th. We’ll be handing out FREE signed To The Death stuff, as well as a shed-load of other goodies (such as Transformers/Death’s Head posters, script/comic packs, comics, prints and more) for sale at the event. You might even get Geoff to do a one-off sketch of your favourite character just for you! Come along and meet the co-creators of Death’s Head, Dragons Claws and of course To The Death. https://www.facebook.com/events/865532770249327/
To The Death Episode 15, “Assault on a Cloudscraper” (from Simon Furman and Geoff Senior) is now LIVE and ready to download/view – AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE. The two-pronged do or die (most likely the latter) assault on the Triumvirate’s Hub Cloudscraper begins, but the heads of Arms, Entertainment and Energy didn’t get where they are today without laying in a contingency plan or two. Meanwhile, Diamond Bill goes ballistic in an attempt to liberate Dryagin’s wife and son, and all manner of other stuff kicks off big-time. If you think it’s been visceral and violent so far… you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. ALL EPISODES are still available to view/download, so it’s not too late to catch up on the hottest sci-fi saga since Fahrenheit 451. And Episode 1 is FREE-TO-VIEW. http://to-the-death.com/episodes/
