PREVIOUS EVENTS

THE INTERNATIONAL COMICS EXPO (ICE) 2014

ICE 2014 was a hugely successful convention with an abundance of guest creators and exhibiting publishers, retailers and artists on show.

The weekend kicked off with a VIP meal for the guests at ZIz Zi's in Birmingham. In the morning we put together 150 amazing goodie bags for our early bird visitors. Thanks to Nostalgia & Comics and Diamond Distribution for supplying us with bags and goodies, including some hardback Graphic Novels!!

The Convention then continued with a relaxed, yet atmospheric, day of fun, art and comics and ended with another VIP evening with guests and dedicated fans at the wonderful Roof Garden Bar within the venue.

We've had amazingly positive feedback from you all and we are looking to make ICE 2015 even better!!

 

COMICS UNCOVERED 2014

This year's Comics Uncovered conference was also a huge success. We were lucky to have so many experienced professionals on hand to share their knowledge with budding creators.

Comics Uncovered 2014 was supported by DC Comics, Titan Comics, Gazelle Books, Humanoids UK and Diamond Comics who all sent delegates to meet with creators and publishers. The conference was also supported with public funding from the Arts Council of England.

The day was packed with Talks, Seminars, Workshops, Master Classes and Art Demos, as well as one to one portfolio reviews and meetings. Guest speakers included DC Comics Editor Joey Cavalieri, Humanoids Editor Tim Pilcher and Legendary artist Steve Rude. There were also colouring classes from DC and Marvel colourist and editor Marie Javins and events for writers hosted by Tony Lee and Ian Edginton.

Next year we'll have more editors taking part and even more artist and writers.

 

THE VIP MEET AND GREET WITH STEVE RUDE AND SURPRISE GUEST ROLAND BOSCHI

This was a very special event held at Nostalgia & Comics on the Thursday evening before the Expo and fans had a rare opportunity to chat, one on one, with the legendary artist and get sketches and comics signed.

Steve was joined later in the evening by French Marvel artist Roland Boschi, who also happily sketched away for fans late into the night.

A huge thank you to Dave and Dave at Nostalgia & Comics for hosting the event, to both artists and to the fans who turned up to make it so special.

We hope to hold more special VIP events like this before future shows.
