NYCC: 8th-10th October

A hasty AttentionFart:

I will be attending the New York Comic Con on October 8th and 9th. Don't yet know if I'm doing signings or whatnot, but if you can't find me at the Marvel or Avatar booths, swing-by the Lansdowne Road Irish Pub on 10th Avenue, or The Pony Bar two blocks further North, both of which are unofficial Brit Creator hangouts.

On the Sunday my Better Half flies into town, and we're off to do the Tourist Thang. So, um, get 'em while they're hot.

So... uh... here's a Thing:


Panel Borders live: Gleaming the Silver Surfer

As part of a fund raising night to support Resonance FM, themed around the subject of silver, Alex Fitch will be talking to comic book writer and novelist Simon Spurrier about the Marvel comics character the Silver Surfer, who he penned in a recent mini-series called 'In thy name' - Alex and Simon will be discussing the character's origins on and off the page and aspects of space opera and eschatology in his appearances.

Other guests on the night will include: representatives of the V&A's silver collection on the socio-economic and historical role silver played in British Imperialism; the BBC's central Asia correspondent on the geo-politics of silver; London's Pétanque society; a panel of art critics discussing Belgian surrealist René Magritte's portrayal of silver and Mark Pilkinson on silver in relation to contemporary mythology and sci-fi.
