I’m delighted to announce I’ve been asked to be a guest at 2D, the Northern Ireland Comics Festival, which is happening from 30 May – 2 June in Derry. It will be my third year attending and my second year as a guest.
There is a fantastic list of talented artists and writers attending (including Rob Curley – so Atomic Diner will be well represented). Since this year Derry is Europe’s City of Culture the festival has been extended, and Saturday and Sunday the comic book fair will be in the Millennium Forum (free entry!), along with the Heroes & Legends show. As usual on Friday and Saturday evening there will be discussion panels in Sandinos.
2D is one of the most welcoming comic book festivals I’ve attended. Dave Campbell and his team, who run the behind-the-scenes organisation, are friendly, helpful, and hard-working. It’s a treat just to go, and a privilege to be asked as a guest.
I’m looking forward to catching up with friends and colleagues during the weekend, and geeking out about comics.
