Foodies Versus Models

Ahh, the eternal battle between those who want to enjoy themselves
and those who care too much about their appearance...

Well, about time I spoke about WynterCon, I guess.  

WynterCon was my first time attending a convention as a guest and I have to say, it was one of the best experiences of my life.  I ended up doing two panels, with a bunch of writers/artists which was a lot of fun (though nerve-wracking) to do.  We spoke a lot about our feelings on where comics are going; what works and what doesn't, that sort of thing.  It was really fun to sit around with a bunch of like-minded people and just chat about what we loved.  We all had to explain how we broke into comics, which was a bit weird, as I had to explain that my break was in the process of happening, what with me being hired for Titan Defender Pushka-but, everyone was really welcoming and I even got a pat on the back from David Leach, an editor for Titan Comics.  I met some amazing people; Jimmy Pearson, writer of The Heart of War and Bayou Arcana; Bob Molesworth, artist for the Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics; Alan Campbell, author of Sea of Ghosts; Aneurin Wright, creator of Things to do in a Retirement Home Trailer Park and many, many more.  The thing that struck me the most, was how welcoming and friendly everyone was-it was a really supportive atmosphere to be in, which was amazingly inspiring.

I also met Dave Prowse (yes, Darth Vader himself) which was terrific.  He had some interesting stories regarding the making of the Star Wars trilogy.

And I finally got to meet Richard Gladman and Leo Dyke-the two guys I'm working with on Titan Defender Pushka-face-to-face.  We spoke a lot about where we'll be going with the title and I have to say, I can't wait to get it out there.  We're currently ironing out the kinks and applying a bit of spit and polish to the zero issue and we're hoping to have it launched ASAP.  In the meantime, here's the cover to whet your appetite:

A big thankyou to Andy Kybett and Catherine Herriott for organising the event-the amount of hard work you guys put in was amazing!

In other news, at the end of November, I will be doing my next convention, right here in my home town of Ipswich.  So, if you're in the area, come down and say hello!

I'll have limited edition prints of selected Versus Battles for sale-produced by the lovely folks at Carbon Creative Arts as well as some very limited edition framed and signed prints and a bunch of postcards featuring various Versus Battles too.

Speaking of the prints, Carbon do sell them through their website, so, if you want some, but can't make it to Master-Con, you can grab yourself some there.

And finally, Versus is now available on the Comic Chameleon Webcomic App ! The app is available for iPhone and will soon also be available for Android-it's a great way to read webcomics on the go, so check it out!
