Leeds Signing Report.

We had a great day out in Leeds on Monday.

OK Comics is lovely little establishement which we heartily endorse. If we lived in Leeds we'd never be out of the place.
Jarrod and the lads looked after us really well during the day; filling us full of coffee and smiling politley as we talked a load of rubbish at them.

Thanks to everyone who popped in and chatted to us and got us to scrawl on their copies of Albion and The End Is Nigh.

We'd never met Mr. Al Ewing before Monday but we really enjoyed his company and managed to get our mitts on some of his splendid Beat Girl Comics which are bloody hilarious.

After the signing we all adjourned to lovely little pub called The Angel where we ended up staying until about 10 o'clock. A round for seven people never came to more than a tenner! Good times!

Mike Molcher (yes he really is that tall) is grinning because he's the editor of the best magazine in the world and everyone knows it!

The End Is Nigh is now available at Travelling Man comic shops accross the UK.

If you don't have a Travelling Man near you then march into your nearest comic shop and ask them if they have a copy.
If they don't then get them to order some in! All they have to do is email endisnigheditor@yahoo.co.uk and request some mags.

Get buying/ordering/reading!

The issue features an EXCLUSIVE interview with comic writing god ALAN MOORE!

Don't miss the fantastic full-colour cover by 2000AD favourite BOO COOK and artwork by 2000AD legend FRAZER IRVING! And there's also an interview with JOHN WAGNER and ALAN GRANT about The Last American, and artist MELINDA GEBBIE talks about her work on the film of When the Wind Blows.

Signed V for Vendetta posters...FAKES!!!

This is one of the most foolhardy things I have seen all year. Some bright spark in Australia has decided that the V for Vendetta Film posters would sell for lots more money if they were signed. The posters went on eBay earlier this month and sold to several people. The thing is they were not only "signed" by the cast members but also Alan Moore, my dad and the worlds least enthusiastic 'V for vendetta- the movie' fan. If any of the signatures are real I will eat my copy of V with ketchup. Its not helped by the fact that all of them are done in the same pen, meaning that the cast and my dad got together one day in a cosy little room, sat down and signed these posters all together....Imagine the little bits of banter...

"Mr Moore can you pass me another silver pen...mine's run out..."

"certainly Ms Portman or may I call you Natalie?"

Dad has vehemently opposed being connected with this film, he has not taken any of the option money, and has told Joel Silver personally how he feels about it.
The idea of him signing posters is hilarious. I know they were forged by some abysmal poster selling twerp, but it seems they have not researched their stock even slightly. I feel very sorry for all those who bought these items with their hard earned cash and would advise them to request a refund, leave bad feedback and contact eBay about the forgeries.

The seller says: "Each poster, without exception, is an original HAND SIGNED collectible by all the castmembers listed. We do not sell any reproductions of any kind, and completely guarantee each poster's authenticity. NOT an inkjet print, NOT an autopen, NOT a copy of any sort. This is a studio printed poster direct from the production studio. The poster you see in this listing is the poster you will receive. Every collectible at MovieArtHouse has been authenticated and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity . Our Certificate of Authenticity is recognized by every major insurance carrier worldwide and we financially stand behind it. We have an outstanding reputation for the thoroughness of our research, for our business integrity and for our service to our clients. "

which sounds pretty authentic...Unless you see the jpeg of the actual poster...


My dad's signature is notorioiusly very easy to forge (not that i ever have of course!) but this is not even close... a peremptory glance at another Alan Moore Signature would reveal the disparity.

Ah well, I hope future buyers from this ebayer will be more careful. The fact that he has sold over 400 items and only has 2 negative feedbacks is really alarming. Ebayer Beware!

Thanks to Rich Johnston at Lying in The Gutters for this tip off, well spotted that man!

This earthquake has wiped out entire villages and at least 20,000 people are feared dead, with many more injured and without shelter. Pakistan is worst hit, but parts of India and Afghanistan are also affected. Many of the people involved live in isolated communities, cut off and desperately in need of help.

Box Of Issue 3s Arrived Today


Cover by Dave Gibbons. Posted by Picasa

I was unexpectedly awakened by The Fed Ex man delivering our boxes of Albion #3 this morning.
We usually get our comps the week before the book reaches the shops so the optimist in me wants to say "Look out for issue three next week" but I've already been stringing you all on with my "next week" nonsense for a fortnight or so.
Tell you what, just ask at your local comic shop for details. ;)

The Travelling man got us to sign a few copies to send out to their other branches in Newcastle, Nottingham, Leeds and...somewhere else i forgot. No need to miss out! if you have a comic shop in the country and you'd like us to do a signing get in touch and we'll see if we can do it.
