Nobody Warned Me About Cosplay
Well, that was fun. The Excel Centre, where I headed to sign books, appeared to have a number of conventions on. The Baby Show sat inappropriately beside girls dressed as Poison Ivy or The Little Mermaid. I’d only vaguely been aware of Cosplay, the art of dressing as your favourite comic character – some of the steampunk costumes made in America, where they take this sort of thing very seriously, are incredible – and was taken aback to find myself on the DLR with about ten Supermen.
I met Roy Thomas from The Avengers comics and had a great time with the PS gang, and this nice Wonder Woman cheerfully posed with the book. It looks like we’ll be having an official launch for the graphic novel at Gosh! Comics in Soho shortly – to be announced – and the launch for ‘Film Freak’ will be on April 8th.
And further good news – it looks like the sales of ‘Casebook’ will be enough to justify a second volume, when Keith and I will REALLY go to town on the artwork and characters…
