WesterNoir Book 2 reviews...

This week we've had two reviews of the second issue of WesterNoir appearing on the web. First we had and then
Both are great reviews which really helps motivate us to complete Issue 3, which is progressing very nicely indeed thanks mostly to the effort Gary is putting into it. You can see page samples and more over on Gary's blog.
And ... if you're in Dundee this weekend then pop over to the Accent UK table at the Dundee Comics Expo and say 'Hello', you can have a look at WesterNoir first hand while you're there, as well the rest of our books.

Comica's Comiket and other news...

Accent UK have a table at the  Comica - Comiket Independent Comic fair! in London on April 20th.
We've always enjoyed these one day events run by Paul Gravett, Peter Stansbury and Megan Donnelly, and it's a Convention like no other in the UK. I think the closest we've ever been to is Copenhagen's Komiks.DK event.  This time sees a change of venue to the new Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design just behind Kings Cross station which looks interesting.You can find out a lot more about the event over on Colin's blog.
Sadly we missed out on tables at Thought Bubble, which sold out in just 2 hours, we're on the cancellations list, so there's still a chance.
In other news, Darren Ellis, a contributor to numerous Accent UK anthologies, has started his own writer's blog, hmmm ... that's sound a little too close to writer's block for comfort, and also a new website (how does he find time to write ?). Follow the link from his name for the blog and the word website for his .... well ... website, and check them both out.
From an Accent UK publications perspective, a couple of books are on the home straight now. WesterNoir Book 3 continues to follow Josiah Black through his ever darkening world, you can watch this progress on Gary Crutchley's blog. Has Kane Mesmer Losst His Magic Touch ? sees Marleen Lowe's artwork grace another Blessed/Cursed one shot written by Dave West.
