Issue 26 Squirmy’s Revenge Pt 1

The Story So Far- Recently something strange has been affecting Vibes’ powers, a problem not helped by some recent personal tragedy. Alternative therapist Dr Anty and mechanic/inventor Rotecol vocally debate the source of the problem. Unfortunately for them, Vibes and possibly even the universe the problem is far bigger than they thought and the return of an old enemy has massive implications for everyone…

Interstellar review

As ever with my reviews the aim is to keep spoilers to a minimum. However I do feel in order to totally limit spoilers just go and watch the film then see if you agree with the critics!

I’m going to say this upfront- I love Christopher Nolan’s films, ranging from the mind boggling Inception to the quieter and (in my personal opinion) under-rated remake of Insomnia. True there was some backlash from fans about Dark Knight Rises but again I personally think it’s a film that’s a bit worse than two brilliant films (A similar thought to Godfather 3, another film that I think gets an unfair critical kicking).

Interstellar is big, epic and ambitious, with some truly exceptional images and breathtaking cinematography. However it is also a film that is about love and has a strong family drama as a big part of the narrative as well. This may well put some people off and if so fair enough. For me personally this was not a problem!

Matthew McConaughey continues his recent career resurgence with a strong performance that is more intense than his usual casual demeanour suggests.  The strong supporting cast includes Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and the now obligatory inclusion of Sir Michael Caine (although to be fair he does do his obligatory mentor role well!) There is also a crucial supporting actor I didn’t know about who was very surprising (and I will say no more here).

There are various twists and turns in the movie concerning the need to find life on other planets as well as a more personal story entangled with the exploration. How the two threads come together is fascinating and it is this that caused a lot of debate.

The showing at Norwich Cinema City was followed by a Q and A with Dr Vincent M Gaine and a number of Norwich based scholars. The debate was fascinating and it was clear a number of them did not share my love for the film (although my personal opinion is a lot of the intellectual analysis rather missed the point of the intimate nature of the story and there was a lot of unfair shots at the narrative that for me seemed more a dig at Hollywood narrative in general). I hope more cinemas do this as it really added another layer to the experience and if you get the chance to go to something similar I heartily recommend you do!

Finally a plea- if you do watch this, watch it in the cinema. This is something that is meant both for the grand scale of the big screen but also for the shared experience of a collective audience. You may love it, you may hate it, but without question it is an experience that I think people should have while they have the chance.

 


London MCM report

You can probably sum up London MCM in one word- massive!

Me with Issue 25 artist Dan Butcher hard at work!

 

London MCM takes place every year in May and October.It consists of game demos, celebrity autograph signings and photo shoots, merchandise and (our section) the Comic Village, home to a wide array of independent comics. We were next to Anthony Del Col, the co-creator of Kill Shakespeare (Reading it at the moment, it’s awesome!)

Our team this time consisted of Rach “Arkyfox” Nobes (Award-winning cosplayer and merchandise designer), Rosie Neal (Another excellent merchandise designer and also our next issue artist) and Conor Thompson (A top chap and another cosplayer and designer in his own right). On the Saturday we were also happy to get a guest appearance from Dan Butcher, a regular artist on the team who has been with us since the start.

As you can see we had a number of goodies alongside the comics (including some fab jewellery from the Keelock collection) that got everyone’s attention and ensured we got  a wide selection of people coming by and chatting (including some regulars we know from the Norfolk Furs who were keen to stop and chat as well as a dazzling range of cosplayers).

 

This was at the end of the weekend. We didn't ramraid MCM, promise!

This was at the end of the weekend. We didn’t ramraid MCM, promise!

 

There were a number of highlights, including giving our top team member Gizzy a chance to speak with the original Red Ranger Austin St John as well as taking in the wide array of stalls (incidentally I will be looking out in Norwich for Smores Bars and Pocky, just saying!) We also had people chatting about promoting online and indie comics in general and it’s always fab to encourage people and help them get creating. It’s not easy but it’s very rewarding!

The big thing was that thanks to our sponsors and Kickstarter backers we were able to premier Issue 25 at the convention. And I’m happy to say that we got some good sales of it and the feedback we received thus far has been very positive (If you want to see the latest issue click here)

Finally I just want to say a big thank you to Dan, Rach, Conor and Rosie. While cons are great fun they do also require a lot of work and it’s not always easy to get everything done. But for me it’s always fantastic to see people working hard to promote something I love and even now it means a lot to have people put time and effort into pushing our project forward.
