London Super Comic Con Photos

Was lucky enough to get my hands on the convention special edition Lightning Strike Issue 2

There were a lot of great Indie and small  press types, selling all kinds of cool shit.

Simon Furman at the signing position as David Hind hovvers like some vast predatory bird.

Easily the best Cosplay of the Weekend : Rocket Racoon!!!!

Cosplay Runner up.

Somtimes you cant help but photo bomb these things.

2D Festival endorsed by Deadshot!!!

Sometimes you have to admire the creativity involved in theses costumes. Someone dressed as The Punisher, dressed as Captian America. This is from the post Civil War period when the Punisher was trying to take Caps place. Didnt last long.

A really nice Generation X period Husk.

Nuff Said.

Nick Roche was a Sketching Machine at LSCC.

Believe it or not i was actually forced into this pose.
Dec is such a great guy, that he just kinda turned up to hang out and talk comics.

This is as close as i could get to Dan Slott. The que imediately to his left was HUNDREDS  of people long. From what i could hear he was an amazingly gregarious and likeable guy.

Nick Roche , remaining amazingly tight lipped about forthcoming Transformers plots. The Bastard.

Nice effort with the Colonial Marine costume.
The fans versus creators panel with Roy Thomas, Simon Furman , The lead singer of Green Day , and Ian Hislop.

2DCAST EPISODE 23: Star Trek The Next Generation writer Dennis Bailey

Greetings Space Cadets. Despite the world having changed in many historic ways since the last episode , we continue to pump out the same old gubbins. We discuss Marvels recent folly, the brand new Pope, Kick Ass 2 trailer, recent comics sales figures and plenty more besides. We are also very lucky to have as our guest Sci Fi writer Dennis Bailey , who takes time from his vacation ( or as we in Europe call it “holiday”) to tell about how his history as a fan led to him writing for Star Trek The Next Generation. This is an awesome interview folks that I had to cut to shreds because of time constraints . Dennis had a lot of interesting things to say , therefore, we will have an unedited version of this interview on Irish Comics News later this week.
