Just a brief note to confirm that the Accent UK crew will be assembling at this weekend's Kapow comic convention. Kapow enjoyed great write ups and success at its first show last year which we missed because of its clash with MoCCA 2011 so this year we've decided to give it a go.
There's a great guest list and events schedule at Kapow's site but chances are I won't attend any of them as these days I'm content to man our table and have a casual browse round other stalls - an hour or more away queueing for a sketch or attending a panel is unfortunately something of a luxury for an independent publisher.
The main excitement for us will be the UK launch of Westernoir with both writer Dave West and artist Gary Crutchley to be in attendance - Gary on the Saturday only - where a special edition of the book will be available with a, get this, original 2-tone 'tip in' sketch from Gary!
In fact Accent UK's chief designer Andy Bloor may also put in an appearance so you may get a rare chance of meeting the whole production team, including yours truly wearing 'ye editor' hat on this one.
In addition, everyone who buys a copy of Westernoir will be entered into a special prize draw to win a very fine original A3 pencil sketch from Gary!!
And if that's still not enough, Westernoir may not be the only new release from us at the show as the much anticipated Zombies 2 book should also be available, printing and schedules permitting!
But be warned this one has real bite!!
