Late 2013 Appearances – Updated! BEWSH.

August 13th, 2013 No Comments

Want to know where you can meet, greet, and tweak the teat of Team Scannon in the latter half of 2013? Of course you do.

August 31st / Sept 1st – Home territory as we attend the Cardiff Comic-Con at the Motorpoint Arena. Event details at http://www.cardiffcomiccon.com/

October 26th – 27thMCM London Comic Con. Team Scannon head to the Big Smoke to get intimidated by the dirty pigeons. They love a bit of it. http://www.mcmcomiccon.com/london/

November 23rd – 24th – We’re Leeds-bound for Thought Bubble. Team Scannon have somewhat belatedly scored a table at this seminal con, and I’ve just realised the dates mean we’ll miss the broadcast of the Doctor Who 50th show. Nards. http://thoughtbubblefestival.com/

As an added bonus, we’re likely to have issue 6 ready for at least one of these cons! Probably!

Workshops and Other Stuff!

Hello Lounatics!

Thought we’d give you a nice little update.

Dan is over halfway through the arty-bollocks for issue 5, and Jim and Kris are gearing up for an intense February colouring-fest to get the book ready for the Cardiff International Comic Expo on March 2nd. Can we do it in time? Of course we can! We hope! Oh shit! I’m actually cacking myself in fear of trying to complete the book. But hey! It’ll get done. Probably. Eep.

Also, we could REALLY use your readers letters for issue 5. Submit ‘em here!

Backtracking from issue 5, we also have the new reprint cover of issue 4 – this will be used on the next print-run in a month or two. Art by the delightful Neil!

And finally, Team Scannon blistered their way across the pages of the Argus newspaper in Cardiff, as Dan and Kris braved the snow to help take part in a comic production workshop and Q&A, hosted by Cardiff Library. Working alongside legendary artist Mike Collins, and almost-legendary-give-him-a-few-years Joe Glass, the event was fun and informative!

That’s it for now!

Cardiff Comic Expo November 2012 round-up

November 9th, 2012 No Comments

Team Scannon showed up at the one-day event at the Mercure Hotel in Cardiff on Sunday 4th Nov to shill their wares, and a good day was had by all! We had the chance to meet many of the current Lou readership (thanks for the kudos everyone!), and get some new readers on-board too! We came away with just a few books left of issues 1 and 3, so we’ll be getting more printed of those ready for Thought Bubble. The Cardiff Expo was a brilliant event, smoothly run, with great guests, exhibitors and attendees all around. We’ve already signed up for the next one in March 2013!

   

Lou Scannon lands in Cardiff

February 27th, 2012 No Comments

February 25th, 2012 and BEWSH, Team Scannon land at the Holland Mercure Hotel in Cardiff,  just in time for the Cardiff International Comic & Animation Expo. We busted our butts to get issue 3 ready in time for the convention, and we cut it as fine as we dared, picking up the issues from the post depot on Friday evening. Eep.

Team Scannon - Assemble!Saturday got off to a cracking start – by early afternoon we’d sold more copies of the books than we did all weekend at Leeds, and sales almost equalled our Leeds weekend totals on Sunday as well. Very, very surprising, but also incredibly gratifying! We dented our stock of #2 and #3 quite heavily, and totally sold out our issue 1 stock – fantastic stuff!

 

Despite a few mishaps that we’ll not go into detail over, the weekend was a corker overall, a chance to catch up with other fellow creative friends, and generally have a bit of a laugh.

Shilling our wares...

 

Response to the comic has been wonderfully positive so far, and now it’s time to start the legwork on issue 4 – which can be pre-ordered from our Issues section!
