2018 Dublin Comic Con

One might ask, are you guys going to pack in the whole comic creating thing? Fair question and the answer is No… we’ll keep at it…

Still without a new book, we nevertheless wished to take part with 2018 Dublin Comic Con so once again, we set our sights with gathering and moderating a Panel of Writers. On Sunday 12th August 2018 I took the moderating position and was lucky to have 3x Great Writers willing to take part, who were:

2017 Dublin Comic Con

If a Tree falls in the Woods but no one is there to hear it… did it actually fall?

We were set to table at DCC 2017 but had to pass out table on… Life can be shitty sometimes.

Having said that, Dublin Comic Con presents great opportunity to get involved every year and so there were other ways for us to take part. On Saturday 12th August 2017 I hosted a Writing for Comics panel at 4pm. I took the moderating position and was lucky to have 4x Great Writers willing to take part, who were:

We hit up 2016 Dublin Comic Con once again with A Life in Defence. Our original plan was to launch a second book at this event… but Life got in the way. It’s actually kind of funny how different comic creating is at both Professional and Independent level. Secret Wars (2015) saw delays, The Dark Knight III is experiencing delays and so too will Civil War II…

I say the above only to make ourselves feel better. We were disappointed not to have our second book ready but we did take comfort from the many people who stopped by our table to say Hi. Many asked about our next book and while we were sorry to disappoint, it was quite encouraging for us to see so many people eager to see more for us as a collaborative team. Continue reading

That difficult second album…

We’re very pleased with our success for A Life in Defence (check out the reviews here) and as we look ahead to dark winter evenings, attention has turned to preparations for Book number 2.

We’re in an odd situation in that we have a script for another comic locked and ready to go… but both Colin and I are in agreement that this particular script would be better suited as Book 3. For any who met us at either Dublin Comic Con or Colin at the Comic City festival in Derry, we said that the story of A Life in Defence is a one-shot and our next books will also be stand alone stories. We’re sticking to that and do have some out-there tales planned for 2016.

Starting the next book...

Book 2 has started to take shape. I, Seamus, wasn’t able to attend the Comic City festival in Derry as I was abroad but that trip abroad gave me something very useful when it comes to creating comics: 2x 19 hour flights with lots of time to focus on crafting an engaging story. We have the story outline ready and a few key scenes drafted. We’ll focus now on getting the the script complete and will run it through a few drafts to make sure that we’re happy with it. We’ll be aiming for a 2016 launch but while that gives us a lot of time to play with, we’re focused on creating quality material for 2016 and so won’t be taking it easy.

We’re looking forward to creating and we hope you’re looking forward to reading (“,)
