The next name to be attending as a guest this year is another returnee…

Please welcome back the very awesome Gary Erskine!

Welcome back to Nottingham, how did you find last year’s Nerd Fest Comic Con?


I loved the first Nerdfest event and was proud to be a prt of the show. Delighted to be invited back again this year [with fellow inaugural guest John McCrea]

What have you been up to since we saw you in Nottingham last October?

Since last year I have been busy teaching creative workshops at schools and libraries, doing commercial work for both the games and comic industry. I worked on the first few issues of the Dead Boy Detectives [for Vertigo], contributed artwork for the deliciously violent Grindhouse: Flesh Feast of the Devil Doll with writer Alex De Campi [for Dark Horse] and continued with Madefire’s The Irons: Hybrids [episodes to be released soon] I was also given the opportunity to return to my second book WARHEADS after twenty two years [MARVEL] and was pleased with the final release! There was also work done for Team GB British Cycling’s Performance Pathway campaign and that should be available around the country in schools and sport halls and at events.

The ROLLER GRRRLS project is still going ahead and I plan to release the much anticipated [and delayed] first issue before the convention. It should prove a great success with the Hellfire Harlots roller derby girls who turned up last year!

I will be sketching and signing all day, and promoting ROLLER GRRRLS [and possibly previewing a second secret project]!
