I just returned to Toronto last night after an amazing 10 days in England and I’m still on a bit of a high. Those that know me know that I love the city of London. And after three trips there in the last 18 months I love it even more – and have been discovering that the country is starting to love Kill Shakespeare as well!
Concluding my trip, I attended the MCM London Comic-Con at the ExCel Centre on London’s southeast. I had attended the May version and, having enjoyed it, returned for some more. It was a great weekend – we sold completely out of books, sold most of our tshirts (again, apologies for those that really wanted our Shakespeare Fighter shirt, which sold out immediately), I hung out with some amazing people, did a great talk (and very well-attended) on How to Pitch and Market Your Indie Comic Book, and had a lot of fun.
I have so many people to thank for this past weekend. First off, the organizers of the London Comic-Con, especially Gary Howe, for making my stay possible. Thanks to Emma Vieceli (and Andrew Ruddick) for also helping to coordinate my appearance and the talk. Thanks to the witty and fun Serena Obhrai for serving as hostess through the week (and make sure to check out her new comic series Elysia, available early next year!). Thanks to the boys at Traveling Man for helping to get my books to me. Thanks to Mike Holman, Scott Hatfill, Ben Cornish and everyone at Diamond for coordinating everything on the distribution side. And thanks to everyone who swung by the table (and my talk) to say hello, learn about KS, and chat! I love London!
Here are a selection of photos from the weekend:
