ITEM!2000AD Prog 1699 out this week, featuring a one off Dredd episode by Al Ewing and Me, “A House for Aldous Mayou” is a neat little one off, sad and poignent, and explains a lot about Dredd’s worlds technology. Clever stuff by Al. ITEM! New York, New York! Start spreading the news… I’m hitting the NYC comic con this year, 8th Oct to the 10th – I’ll be borrowing the floor of the eclectic micks and will have a sketchbook. This is all last minute (and on the dirt cheap) so, though 2000AD are there, I haven’t organised anything yet. ITEM! BICS – Birmingham Is it just me, or didn’t BICS used to mean the Bristol comic con? Anyway, whatever, I’ll be hitting BICS this year – bought and paid for just before I decided to also do New York – which means it’s gonna be one knackering couple of weeks. If you spot me, say hello. Unlikley to have a table – though, afaik Strip Magazine UK WILL have one, so you’ll probably find me there or at the 2000AD table. ITEM! Some sketches!
