If anyone in the West Midlands area missed out on getting prog 2146 with my cover on it the other week, they have it at Forbidden Planet in Wolverhampton where I'll be signing from 12-3pm. I'll be sketching and selling prints etc too.

Have a great day, Dreddheads!

The lack of events in Cal-hab has, I believe, less to do with the size/nature of the venues than the fact that over the years, almost without fail literally no one ever turns up.

I've done a couple of (non-Scottish) signings like that (which I'm sure will surprise no one) and it's soul-destroying. You're checking your watch every five minutes because every five minutes feels like an hour, and trying to mentally calculate the earliest point at which you can decently fuck the whole thing off and go to the pub.

Can someone message me when the ‘big news’ (whatever that is) breaks about Dredd please? I need to sleep off this hangover.

Are we expecting big news? I though it was just a marketing push?

It’s true,  the Grennie droid has had a right good rant about that, and with good reason over the years,
I think if we had the signings in a pub that might suit everyone better....
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Forbidden Planet Glasgow are threatening to have regular signing events at their ginormous new store in Sauchiehall Street after it opens (projected October, I think), which would be the last chance saloon for Glasgow squaax to actually turn up for something.  (The all-time low: three of you, at a signing in A1 in Parnie Street a couple of years ago.)

State of play at the moment, though: the current Glasgow FP is too small and crowded, and FP Edinburgh just do not seem interested. Hence why the nearest Day of Dredd event is happening in Newcastle.

Popped down to Forbidden Planet and had a lovely chat with Nick Percival. Another contender for the nicest man in comics. Bought a couple if lovely (well lovely isn't the word is it) prints and got this beauty in my Book of Thargs

I've been to a couple of signings in London and they were well-attended.
