I never get used to this.
On Saturday the 4th of June, Nic Wilkinson and I will be signing copies of Slaughterman's Creed at Whatever Comics (my spiritual homeland and maintainer of my personal pull list since late 1990). We'll be there between 12pm and 4pm. The shop's very own Godfather, the Mighty Manny Armario, tells us he will be coming as the book's top-dog villain, Lenny Addison, while there's also talk of a special appearance from a female version of Mr. Green, courtesy of actress Karol Steele!
To mark this event, Whatever Comics has worked with Markosia Enterprses to create a limited edition of Slaughterman's Creed, with a variant sketch cover unique to the shop. There's also a raffle to win an original piece of art specially created by Stephen Downey and colourist, Vicky Stonebridge for the signing.
Whatever comics is located at 9 St. Peters St. High Street, Canterbury, CT1 2AT. If you're local and want to swing by, we'll look forward to seeing you there!
As reported on Stephen Downey's blog, the launch of Slaughterman's Creed will also be celebrated with a signing at Forbidden Planet Belfast on the 11th of June. In addition to Stephen himself, the book's inker, Andy Brown and cover painter, Ryan Brown will be there also.
If you go along to that one there's a FREE sketch with every copy bought on the day and Andy Luke will be signing and giving out FREE print copies of his and Stephen's comic, Absence.
