It's only a week until the Forbidden Planet Noe signing, so I've been making the promotarious rounds to get the word out.

Mal and I made an appearance on BBC Radio Ulster Art's Extra on Wednesday. We talked about the process of creating comics, themes involved in Noe the Savage Boy, and chatted about the comic industry in general. There's also an interview with Garth Ennis which make good listening. You catch up and stream the show here.

I was interviewed by writer Jay Faulkner on Following the Nerd Internet radio show. We had a nice long chat about comics and general geekiness, which was really fun to do. The show, which features great all-round 'nerd' topics, can be downloaded as a podcast.

There's a great review of Noe on Irish Comic news. Colin O'Mahoney writes

"...artist Stephen Downey, whose detailed pencils and gorgeous inks make this book a thing of real beauty. Credit to Coney for a script that plays to the strengths of his artist, as we are treated to some really amazing double page spreads and splashes in the book."

Here's one such spread from Noe The Savage Boy #1 that I haven't blogged yet, so hopefully it will entice a few of you to make it down on the 9th February. If you can't, tell a friend who can!

Noe The Savage Boy Forbidden Planet exclusive cover and signing

I'll be signing copies of Noe The Savage Boy #1 alongside my collaborators Malachy Coney and Rob Curley in Forbidden Planet Belfast on the 9th February between 1 - 3pm. We've created a Forbidden Planet exclusive cover for the event, seen below, and it should be good fun all round. Come along if you can and tell all your comic-loving friends.
