DERR-ICIOUS!

Just back from the 2D comics festival in Derry, Northern Ireland, and—as ever—what a superb little convention it was. Every year seems to be bigger, better and busier, and this year’s was no exception. Both nights’ sessions in Sandinos were crammed, with panels ranging from the state of comics art, a David Lloyd/Bryan Talbot Q&A and the inevitable mad rabid rant that is the comics to movies session (which I compered). The Saturday was busy throughout, with a great mix of fans, kids and whole families. I was sat with Nick Roche, who turned out incredible sketch after incredible sketch, busily promoting Rad Robots (out soon!), StarCraft and generally teasing my trio of upcoming Tales of the Fallen Transformers stories. Organizer David Campbell, his crew, and Garry Leach (who does so much behind-the-scenes work for the con) should feel justifiably proud. It was a great event. Roll on next year!
