Slaughterman's Creed FP Belfast Signing

To celebrate the launch of Slaughterman's Creed I'll be signing copies at Forbidden Planet Belfast on the 11th of June. Slaughterman's Creed inker Andy Brown and cover painter Ryan Brown will be there also.

If you come along there's a free sketch with every copy bought on the day and Andy Luke will be signing and giving out FREE print copies of our Absence comic.

Hopefully see a few of you there and spread the word if you can.

Slaughterman's Creed: Video Nasties

I got my hands on a few copies of Slaughterman's Creed on the Sunday of last weekend's Bristol Comic Expo, and it's so good to see another year of work held in my hand.

I was suprised that the pages, and Vicky's colours especially, look even better in print than they do on screen. Mr. Green's tattoo's stand out fantasticly well on the glossy paper.

A real life Green: Scott Grandison, who was crazy enough to get his face painted as Mr. Green to host our panel: The Task of Blood: Creating Slaugherman's Creed.

A photo from the panel itself, which went down really well with a healthy audience listening in. You can download the audio, posted under Scott's podcast 'Comicbook Outsiders', here, and if you want to see the presentation slides you can download a PDF here.

I spoke a little about uising reference and models, which included a short 'reference to final pencils' video which you can watch below.

The whole Bristol weekend was a fantastic launch for the book, with lots of people coming by to pick up a long list of pre-orders. Together with sales on the day we shifted over 100 copies which is by far Markosia's highest ever selling convention book.

Next up is the 2D festival in Derry where I'll be on the Creator owned/Piracy panel on Friday 3rd June at 8:30pm, then selling Slaughterman's Creed and sketching at the Comic's open day on the Saturday.

Hopefully see a few of you there.

Ps. Thanks for the photos Vicky
