Indiecon 2014 – Quick Report

So, I spent the weekend near Christchurch, at the Hoburne Naish holiday village toward Barton-on-Sea participating in the annual Indiecon event. Despite the best efforts of the rain and 50 miles per hour speed limits on the way down, and continued rain on and off throughout the weekend, I had a good time. I shared…

Driving Bryan Talbot

Last night I drove Bryan Talbot to Longsight Library in south Manchester. I’m not sure what to think. I went through my comic collection last night and found a copy of 2000AD (mid-500s) from 1987. It had a picture of Thoth and his pet Tyrannosaurus, Satanus, hunting down Colonel John M. Chivington, an earlier incarnation…
