Returning for a third successive year to Birmingham, Shane Chebsey and his gang of outstandingly dedicated gang of friends, family and volunteers, once again offered up a two day event with something different happening on both days. Our intrepid reporter Olly MacNamee reports from The International Comics Expo 2016.
Comic fans in the Midlands are to be treated to an epic weekend as the International Comics Expo 2016 (ICE) arrives in town with guests that include Empire Strikes Back producer Gary Kurtz, The Walking Dead’s Charlie Adlard and Suicide Squad’s Rob Williams – plus many more! Our intrepid reporter Olly MacNamee finds out what’s going down in Brum this weekend…
As comics fans we’re all too familiar with the idea of a hero who is gifted with super powers and forced to deal with the extra-ordinary, but what if the tables were turned and everyone else had powers but you? That’s the premise of the brilliant new creator-owned series, ‘Ordinary’ from Rob Williams and Matt ‘D’Israeli’ Brooker. Released in last week’s Judge Dredd megazine #340 via the 2000AD iPad app, we got a fantastic sneak peak of some the pages, but we still wanted to find out more and so got in touch with Rob and D’Israeli to find out more about their take on super powers and the pros and cons of creator owned comics.
