The countdown as on and with just 2 weeks to go it’s surely time to start some prep work……or at least take a closer look at what the hell I’m going to take to get signed…….who I’d like to maybe check-in with for a sketch…..and who would be free for an interview…..that’s IF I don’t get way to excited and get lost in comic box somewhere along the way.

The Wake by Scott Snyder & Sean Murphy takes us into the mysterious depths of the ocean and serves up what initially appeared to be a tale of man taking over another part of the earth.
After the 2012 release of Dredd (one of the BEST comic book movie in years…..well I think so) our hopes for a follow-up were shot down in a wave of hi-ex fire……but that was eased slightly this year with the Judge Minty Fan Film.
If like me, you’ll have a collection of signed comics with some variants and some standard covers mixed in for good measure and they’ll probably be all bagged & boarded and in a box……and that last part has been a real tough one to get around until recently.
