The Spirit At The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival
Here's a treat, courtesy of my old pal Sean Philbo Phillips:
Sean organizes the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival up in Kendal every year, and there's loads of people you like going this year, ( 13th-15th October ) including Bryan Talbot, Duncan Fedegro, Charlie Adlard, Stan Sakai, Sergio Aragones, and even The Moomins.
Go and check out http://www.comicartfestival.com for more info in you're in the area.
In the meantime, to publicise the event , and to celebrate the centenary of one Will Eisner's birth, Sean's produced the above with some of the guests. A broadsheet sized all-star jamboree of one page Spirit stories, by:
Sean & Ed Brubaker, Becky Cloonan ( who did the cover there ), Brendan McCarthy, Graham Dury & Simon Thorp off Viz, Chris Samnee, Peter Milligan & Duncan Fedegro, Seth, Jason Latour, Michael Cho, Jonathan Ross & Bryan Hitch, Sergio again, and mine & Philbo's all-time favourite British artist of all time, the mighty John M. Burns.
If you can't make it to the festival, you can get a copy from our buddies over at Page 45, Nottingham's premier comic and indepedents bookshop. Here's the link: http://www.page45.com/world/2017/10/page-45-comic-graphic-novel-reviews-october-2017-week-three-lakes-festival-special/…
( Which I can't seem to embed properly, but it does work, honest ) And here's a few examples from Sean, Ed, Chris, John and Sergio. Believe me, as good as this stuff looks here, it's even better giant-size.

If I've posted anything that's yours, and you want acknowledgement, just let me know. Equally, if it's yours, and you don't want me to post it, let me know, and of course I'll take it off.
And if you've come here to read and talk comics, glad to have you aboard. If however, you're here to spam or advertise your scuba gear website, you're wasting your time, as your comments will be deleted the second I see them.
