I’m sure that those of you who follow me on FB and Twitter know about this already, but I’m doing a signing at Gosh the comic shop in London this Saturday [18th] from 1pm-3pm and then an evening talk from 7pm-9pm. Signing and quick sketches will be FREE! Here’s a print I’ve done - exclusive to Gosh - which I’ll gladly sign as well.
Hope to see you there.
Following that, I have the Summer off, and I return to con-land with ICE in Birmingham in Sept. More to follow nearer the time… Have a great summer!
Also, I’ll be bringing copies of my band - Cosmic Rays - debut double vinyl album with me to Gosh. They're £25 each, and I’ll gladly do a sketch to go with that, if anyone wants one.”
Sorry, sorry, sorry I’ve been away for ages. Life has just been really busy, and now I’m on Facebook AND Twitter, it just adds to it’s complications… Anyway - more apologies - I’m sure most of you were aware, I never made that Dutch con. But due to all the flights being canceled that day, and not being able to get out of the UK until Sunday because of it, I unfortunately had to cancel short notice. Sorry to everyone who was expecting me, but, as I’m sure you can understand, it was unavoidable.
And I also forgot to mention my Vienna Comic Con schedule in April too. Sorry again! It was a great show and a beautiful city. Then I appeared in Liverpool and the Trafford Centre in Manchester a few weekends back… both great appearances. Thank you to ALL the people who looked after me at those events and to the fans for coming.
Which brings me up to date….
My next scheduled appearance will be at Gosh comics in London on July 18th. I’ll fill you in on the exact times when I know them myself. I pretty much have the rest of summer clear, then appearances at ICE in Birmingham in September, The Lakes Festival in Kendal in October, and, finally, my one and only USA appearance - NC Comic Con in November.
Remember follow me for more immediate news on FB and Twitter and buy my band’s self titled album Cosmic Rays.
Here's my schedule for the Dutch Comic Con this weekend...
Evening gig with the Misfits.
13.00-14.00 gig Cosmic Rays
15.00-15.30 signatures only
13.00-13.30 signatures only
Had a great time at LSCC, and before my feet touch the ground, a week or so after that, I’m of to the Dutch Comic Con on March 28th-29th. More significantly - apart from my duties signing at the Silvester booth - my band Cosmic Rays are performing on the Saturday. To find out more details, just go to dutchcomiccon.com
And - FINALLY - I have joined TWITTER! You can find me @CharlieAdlard…
Since LSCC is just a week away, I thought I’d let everyone know my signing times there.
Saturday's signing times are :
11am - 1pm and 3pm - 5.30pm
Sunday's signing times are :
10am - 12pm and 2pm - 4.00pm
Detailed sketches will be priced at £100 each for charity which will be done in the morning sessions and based on a first come, first served basis. I’ll have copies of the CD AND vinyl by Cosmic Rays too and I’m willing to do a quick sketch in those or on a separate piece of paper if you purchase one. See you all next weekend!
It's come to my attention that there's someone pretending to be me on Instagram. I'm neither on Instagram or Twitter and I'd certainly let you folks know if I was. The only official sources are here and on Facebook.
So please disregard anything this person says on Instagram - it's not me!
Happy New Year everyone!
Sorry I haven’t written much in the last few months. No excuse - time just got away with me. Last time in writing, I was about to do Kendal [which was great] and Thought Bubble was coming up in November. Sorry, that I never mentioned that one, but, as per usual, it was up to it’s really high standards [it just keeps growing] and that’s why I - now with the Kendal Comic Art Festival - I will ALWAYS keep going back to them… They’re both my favourite cons of the year.
Anyhow, in an effort to cover all bases straight away, here’s a quick overview on what I’m up to this year.
January 29th - 31st. ANGOULEME. Yep, back there again with my favourite publisher Delcourt. So, if you’re there, that’s the publisher stand where I’ll be. No idea of signing times - it might be best to check with Delcourt, since I might not know until I get there. It’s beginning to look like I’m doing Angouleme every other year - which is fine by me.
March 14th - 15th. London Super Comic Convention. Back there again with A Place In Space, since that worked out so well with us last year. More info on that later in the year.
April 18th - 19th. Vienna Comix Con.
September 5th. ICE con in Birmingham… How could I NOT do this? The organiser - Shane Chebsey - is our band’s lead singer!
October 16th - 18th. The Lakes International Comic Art Festival. Back to Kendal, with some exiting music stuff planned already this year.
November 14th - 15th North Carolina Comic Con. My only US appearance this year. Sorry, US folks, I consciously decided to cut back a bit on BIG trips this year, since I did far too many of them in 2014.
That’s what’s been confirmed so far. There’ll be a few more added as we progress through the year [a couple more European shows, which will also be gigs for Cosmic Rays TBC], and maybe a few more one day signings here and there. But keep coming back here to find out my latest movements which I hope I can be together enough to put up before they happen!
One last thing, on a music front, is that we’ve finally released our album on VINYL! It’s a beautiful thing to behold. And, if you like my [and Phil Winslade’s] art BIG, then you should really get this. It’s available through all the usual channels that you can get the CD from [see previous news posts] and now also listed in this month’s Diamond Previews catalogue. So buy, buy, buy… it’s a limited edition and there won’t be too many of these around.
