It’s not everyday you get invited to see a new show in Liverpool but one of the things I’ve learned since starting MancsterCon is that it’s surprising how often the not everyday occurs.
Panic Lab, a performing arts company, known for their fusion of contemporary dance, theatre and performance, were putting on a show called R.I.O.T., described as a comic book come to life with a dash of political commentary thrown in. Excited, I wasn’t ever likely to refuse and so once the tedious bit of organising my schedule had been done, I was all set for an evening about which I had absolutely no idea would turn out.
We’re pleased to announce that writer R.A. Smith, author of Oblivion Storm, will be joining us at MancsterCon 2015, where he will be selling and signing his books as well as taking part in the writers’ panel on genre fiction which will take place during the afternoon on 29th August.
Until then, you can follow him and his exploits on Facebook and Twitter.
See you at the panel!
Alicia L. Wright, author of Miss Prince and creator the Vampires Don’t Belong in Fairytales webcomic is back at MancsterCon 2015!
We’re really pleased to welcome such a talented local writer on board, and especially pleased that she decided to join us again after her first go exhibiting with us last year.
She will also be part of a special writers’ panel joining writers Ninfa Hayes, David Lascelles and R.A. Smith to discuss genre fiction and their writing experiences.
Another newbie who we’re welcoming on board to MancsterCon is Kate-Mia White, a Leeds based artist and writer and… well, why don’t we let her introduce herself:
Kate-Mia white is an illustrator and writer based in Leeds. She studied Fine Art at Winchester School of Art. For the past year she has been exhibiting and selling highly detailed prints and comics set in a steam punk world. She has now just stared her new and exciting comic A Dark Forest a story concerning two sister and disturbing tales, set amongst the backdrop of an old and mysterious forest…
We pretty much instantly fell in love with her gorgeously detailed, meticulous style and we think you will too. Support Kate’s work by following her on twitter and getting your earlybird tickets to MancsterCon (which will get you a goodie bag and entry to the after party). Look forward to seeing you there!
