Looks like some unusual suspects from the droids showing up in Kendal this year, seriously considering this one:

Expensive holiday means I can't really afford this.  But I can make Thought Bubble as I can wangle zero accommodation costs!

I had a great time thanks for asking... ::)

Garth Ennis was worth the ticket price, and a relaxed and amenable chap he was too. Even signing my Justice One page where Judge Proudfoot is killed  :thumbsup:
Some nice Dredd chats too with Rob Williams saying he regretted the way he'd killed off Gunther, got some signings, Out of the Blue Ennis/Burns, Small House, Trifecta and Injection signed too, however never got any Charlie Adlard signing despite taking a mountain of stuff, as his timetable clashed with everything else I wanted to see.

Bryan and Mary Talbot were as lovely as ever and Brayn happy to talk about the new Luther Arkwright book as well as the wonderful Rain GN they had just launched.

Small House, Trifecta and Injection ...

Enceladus/Titan? Insurrection (Abnett, not Williams). You're a sphinx, laddie, but thanks for the (cryptic) match report. Ennis has always struck me as a decent sort.

acht, apollies the pub was due to open when I posted...I meant Gerhart, I have no idea who that other person is!


I got Injection signed by the artist: DECLAN SHAVEY, who was a sound bloke too, last spotted having a pint o Guinness with Ennis, now that would be a great pairing :thumbsup:
