    2D 2013

There is a fantastic list of talented artists and writers attending (including Rob Curley – so Atomic Diner will be well represented).

As usual on Friday and Saturday evening there…

    here comes the sun

    It’s a goregeous summer day and I’ll be spending a chunk of it travelling up to the 2-D Comic Book Festival in Derry. I’m looking forward to showing the first issue of Róisín Dubh to a new audience, and meeting old friends and new. It’s a bank holiday weekend in Ireland so I hope the sunshine lasts to warm up our bones over the next three days. Enjoy it while we have it!
