Something To Smile About
Not only did I enjoy my signing tour around Italy for the usual reasons - nice people, nice food and nice weather - but I had an extra reason to smile, being the first recipient of a new award at the 3rd Narnia Fumetto festival...
AFUI (Association of Italian Comics Bookshops) is proud to present the first �Comic Bookshops Career Prize� for comic book artist and writers. The prize has been assigned to Mr. David LLOYD, artist of the acclaimed graphic novel �V for Vendetta� and author of �Kickback�, recently published in Italy by Magic Press.
I can only say it's good to be appreciated, and it's an honour to receive such an award from a country that's so jam-packed with homegrown talent!
More news : I'm off next to Belgrade. To the 6th International Comics Showroom event from the 25th-28th September. Anyone reading this who's near that neck of the woods - be very pleased to see you. Details at www.skc.org.yu
Final news for this posting : I'm giving a talk on V For Vendetta at Harrods, the famous London department store as part of their That's Entertainment series of events celebrating the variety of entertainment options the store offers its customers. It's at 6pm on Monday 29th, with a signing afterwards. Go to the That's Entertainment section on the Harrods website - harrods.com - for details to book. It's free, but you have to book. Or turn up and take your chances - I'm sure they won't be jamming the doors!
Wherever I see you, I look forward to seeing you.
