Bob Turner will debut his latest release Untitled at Edinburgh Comic Con this weekend and after the impressive but silent roller-coaster that was DTHRTL, this felt like an ideal chance to catch-up on a couple of his titles.
Vital Publishing will be releasing two new titles at this weekends Edinburgh Comic Con and I was lucky enough to get an advanced look at both.
Edinburgh Comic Con eases into its fifth year in just a couple of weeks and it’s one of the few events in the country that I’ve made it to every year.
Card Shark Comics have already impressed enough people with titles like Bust & Vessels but their newest release Killtopia has an amazing buzz and expectation around it. Up steps the writer/artist combo of Dave Cook & Craig Paton and with the initial glimpse at the style & feel of the book……it looks like they could well exceed everyone’s hopes in hitting new heights in the indie comic world. What better time to fire some questions their way??
Aspiring writer Ben Trotter found a home at Devolution Comics and the progress he’s made brought him a nomination in this year’s Yancy St. Awards at Edinburgh Comic Con………….so that’s more than enough reason to take notice.
Artist Mick Trimble has gone from strength to strength as he’s progressed from short small press contributions to full run graphic novels with Markosia and that called for some questions to find out how that’s been.
I first knew Richard Pester through book 1 & 2 of his very personal autobiographical graphic novels Dave, that I picked up at the first Edinburgh Comic Con & more recently through his stunning Dave’s Pop Art exhibitions and after seeing his talent across the mediums he’s involved in I was glad to get the chance to fire these questions his way.
While John Farman has impressed with his previous horror titles like School of the Damned & Royal Descent, his change of direction was always going to be one I’d jump at the chance to read and his latest title from Vital Publishing sees John team up with Jason Mathis to bring us covert comic Spies.
Vital Publishing released the fourth issue of it’s Royal Descent title just recently and they’ll be following that up with a collected trade soon too, so it seemed like a perfect time to catch-up & revisit a book that already impressed.
