Next year's Birmingham Comics Festival has added more guests to its line up. Recent additions are Rachael Smith, writer/artist of graphic novels House Party and The Rabbit, and artist on back-up strips for Titan's Doctor Who Comic; artist and actor Jessica Martin (It Girl, Vivacity, Elsie Harris Picture Palace), and Ian Gibson, long established artist on Star Wars, 2000AD, and many other comics.
They join artist Ariel Olivetti (Marvel and DC Comics), Luca Pizzari (artist on Marvel's upcoming Black Knight series), Leigh Gallagher (2000 AD), writer/artist David Hine (Strange Embrace, Spider-Man Noir, and many other comics), artist Ryan Brown (IDW comics), and myself (Buster, Beano, Doctor Who Magazine etc). Even more guests will be announced over the next few months!
The event takes place at the Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham, on the 23rd April 2016. Although it's quite a while away yet the show is shaping up well. It looks like it'll be a good one!
With at least one comic event practically every weekend of the year, the UK comics community has never been busier. This is a marvelous time to be a comics contributor or reader.
