Robots and Robin Hood at Bristol Expo
News just in from the people at Accent UK, the independent UK comics publisher:
Bellamy’s ROBIN HOOD in Bristol! By special arrangement with Geoff West of The Book Palace, independent comic publisher, Accent UK will have a supply of the newly released Frank Bellamy’s ROBIN HOOD the Complete Adventures book at both the International Comic Expo in Bristol on 10th / 11th of May 2008 and the Komiks.DK festival in Copenhagen on 31st May / 1st June 2008. Copies will be available to view and purchase from Accent UK’s tables or order through the Book Palace website as normal. This gives everyone attending the events the chance to see for themselves first hand this excellent book which brings back into print Frank Bellamy’s legendary early comic strips which have proven elusive for so many years! The book reprints Bellamy’s classic strip from the old British title The Swift with a special introduction and end notes from noted comics historian, Steve Holland. Special flexicover, 144 pages £14.99.
Accent UK , the team behind last year’s popular ZOMBIES and WOLFMEN titles will also be releasing their latest themed graphic novel anthology at the shows, ROBOTS featuring a host of new and emerging comic talents in its 204 pages at the special expo price of £8, for full list of creators and previews please see www.accentukcomics.com, www.bookpalace.com and www.comicexpo.net and www.komiks.dk.
If past releases are anything to go by Accent UK's Robots will be another worthwhile comic book. The quality of the Frank Bellamy book is of course assured. I'll certainly be picking up a copy of both books at the Expo and will review them here as soon as I have time. - Lew
