Think we have a few more guests this year than last and we’re so grateful for all these amazing artists for agreeing to come to our little shindig!

conan-doctor-who-colourWell here’s another one for you! Unfortunately he was unable to make it last year, but HE’S WITH US THIS YEAR! Well known for his work with the Dr, Planet of the Apes and Jersey Gods, please welcome the amazingly talented Dan McDaid.

What are you currently working on?

At this precise moment, I’m working on something that I’m going to self-publish. A thrilling sci-fi miasma in one part, that I’m writing and drawing. I’m having such a brilliant time, I might work this way all the time from now on. If it goes well and people like it, I’ll probably do more. I’ve got an idea for a manga-ish fantasy saga that I’ve been tinkering with for about a year, so I might be doing that. I’m also in the very early stages of working on a couple of projects with two of my favourite writers, one for IDW and one for Boom! Beyond that I can say NUZZINK.

JerseyGods01_p20What has been the highlight of your career thus far?

Probably the launch of Jersey Gods, which was really exciting and very “showbiz”. My partner and I went to New York and met a load of very cool people and the book went over REALLY well. On the flight back I was buzzing with ideas for how we were going to take the book forward from there. Everything seemed possible, it was fantastic. But there’s usually at least one highlight per year of my career so far: working with Irvine Welsh, working with Joe Casey. Cate Blanchett buying my Doctor Who book… this really is a dream job.

You were unable to come to us last year unfortunately, so what do you have in store for us this year?

Laughs! Shocks! Crazy times! I’m going to have my first creator owned thing with me, probably instead of a sketchbook. And I’ll be doing sketches and signing stuff and… generally being awesome.
