Malta, Comics, Prime Ministers and Ambassadors

Malta Comic Con. 2013

I’ve just spent a very enjoyable five and a half days in Malta as a guest of the Malta Comic Convention. This was the second time I have been a guest and it was interesting to see how the event has grown since 2010.

Fellow creator Tim Perkins, Deej Greenwood (one of Tim’s students) and I flew out early Thursday morning. The next day was spent in and around the St James Cavalier Centre in Valletta, the venue for the convention.

The convention took place over the weekend. I spent the time sketching, talking to fans and fellow creators and selling copies of the Kaci Bell Mysteries.

There were a series of unexpected events on Saturday. The first of these was when we, the guests, were introduced to the Maltese Prime Minister. A few hours later we met the American Ambassador to Malta (who was dressed in a Star Trek uniform) and finally towards the end of the day the French Ambassador.

On Monday the convention organizers arranged a tour of Malta’s National Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta and then a trip to the cliffs at Dingli.

I had a great time at the convention, and that was all down to the hard work of Wicked comics (the convention organizers) and the volunteers who helped out over the weekend.

Kaci Bell – Exclusive Malta Print

Posted on November 7th, 2013

Kaci Bell Malta Print

I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to be a guest at this years Malta Comic Convention. This will be the second time that I’ve been a guest and I’m really looking forward to the event.

I wanted to have an exclusive item for sale at the convention, so I produced a limited edition print.

The drawing is of the lead character from The Kaci Bell Mysteries, the new new web strip by myself and writer John Gatehouse.

The print run has been limited to thirty and once they are gone there will be no more.

The Convention will be held over the weekend of the Thirtieth of November and First of December. More details can be found on the Malta Con website.

John Gatehouse and I have produced a new two page comic strip to help publicise both this years Malta Comic Convention, and our forthcoming Trick or Treat ebook. The strip shows our cast of characters visiting Malta for the convention and causing their usual mayhem and destruction.

The Malta Comic Convention this year will be held over the weekend of the 26th and 27th November. More details can be found on the Malta Con website.
