Looking for the elusive issue of X-Men? Prowling the back issue bins for that lesser-spotted Spider-Man comic? This coming Sunday, February 6th, I’ll once more be at the National Collector’s Marketplace selling off my extensive collection of Marvel (and, to a lesser extent) DC comics, so if you’re in the London area why not pop along to the Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way, London WC1 (nearest tube: Russell Square) and see if you can pick up a bargain. I’ll be bringing with me some Transformers comics too, which I’ll be delighted to sign, and rarities such as the Death’s Head graphic novel, The Body in Question. Doors open at 12 noon. Hope to see you there!
The original Death’s Head is back — in a special story that pits him against none other than the Incredible Hulk! Issue #33 of Panini UK‘s Marvel Heroes comic features an amazing two-part clash between everyone’s favourite bounty hunter (um, freelance peacekeeping agent) and the jade giant. Part one is written by Ferg Handley and part two (the real head-to-head, as it were) by me, with art by the amazing Simon Williams. Marvel Heroes #33 is out (in the UK) on the 24th of March. Amazingly, this marks my first work on the original Death’s Head since the early 90s, when he guest-starred in the likes of She-Hulk, Marvel Comics Presents and Death’s Head. Don’t miss this special event and reserve your copy now!
Yeah, I know, I’m late with the link, but it’s been a mad blur since New Year. Anyhow, my latest Comics Candy review column is now up over totalscifionline.com, featuring (among others) reviews of Power Girl, Neonomicon, Doc Macabre, Heroes for Hire and Black Panther. I pull no punches. Click here to view.
Last year, I did a series of 5 short (movie-verse) mini-comics for Million Publishing/TakaraTomy in Japan, under the banner title Unite For the Universe, the first four of which have cropped up in the Japanese releases of Masterpiece Starscream and Masterpiece Bumblebee. Translations of parts 1 & 2 are now available over at the AllSpark. Click here to check them out.
I’ve cleared out my cupboards and posted a chunk of surplus stuff on ebay, including (for Transformers fans) the convention exclusive Alignment novella and a few TakaraTomy rarities. To view all my current auctions click here.
