News of a few confirmed/upcoming (UK) personal appearances to impart, two sooner and one later this year:
First off, I’ll be at a small (but no doubt perfectly formed) Transformers event on Sunday, April 25th in Fordingbridge in Hampshire (a picturesque town on the edge of the New Forest). The local comic store, All The Cool Stuff, is hosting this celebration of all things Transformers and I’ll be there to meet, greet and sign stuff. And sell stuff too! So if you’re anywhere in the vicinity, come on down and say hi. The Transformers day runs from 11AM to 3PM and for more details you can contact All The Cool Stuff on 01425 650696.
Next up, on Saturday 1st of May, I’ll be joining a panel of comics professionals to discuss the halcyon days of Marvel UK as part of the London Science Fiction Film Festival. The event is to be staged at London’s Apollo Piccadilly cinema on Lower Regent Street, kicking off at 11.45AM and hosted by Resonance FM’s Alex Fitch. If you want to come along and find out what went on behind the scenes for the four years I was on staff at Marvel UK (during which time I was assistant editor, then editor on Transformers UK, as well as writer and co-creator of Death’s Head and Dragon’s Claws), then you know where to come. For more details, check out the Sci-Fi London site here.
And then, on August 13th-15th, I’ll be at Auto Assembly, the UK’s premier Transformers convention, where I’ll be doing all the usual panels and signing and also supplying the script for the voice actor drama (featuring, among others, Gary Chalk) and co-hosting a special workshop with writer/artist Nick Roche. More on all that nearer the time, but in the meantime and for advance bookings, check out the Auto Assembly website here.
