Some of you might have spotted that there should have been a Moon related post going up today. Well, we were hoping to bring you some preview art for Moon #2 but sadly Steve has been struck down with a rather nasty bug and is confined to quarters. In place of that I thought I’d take the chance to give you a few good reasons why any self respecting Bunker fan should get their butts down to the MCM Expo at the London ExCel Center this coming weekend.
1 – Moon First Editions and New Covers
The Moon Second Edition variant cover will be officially launching at MCM. It features modified artwork by Steve which looks frankly wonderful. If you want to know how Steve went about doing it then come drop by the table and he’ll be happy to talk you through the design process.
For true collectors, we’ll also be bringing a small number of First Edition copies as well. These come ready bagged & boarded and are the perfect collector’s item for any true fan of lunar justice.
It’s not all comics though. We’ve also got several copies of the Beyond The Bunker DVD, collecting six of our best short films (including “Cock”) and loads of sweet badges to help you publically proclaim your love of Moon.
As always, we’ll be happy to sign anything you buy at no extra cost.
2 – Fallen Heroes
After all of the interest that people have shown at the last few cons, we’ve had a chat with Barry Nugent and are delighted to confirm that we will be able to offer a limited number of copies of Fallen Heroes #1. FH is the comic book adaptation of Barry’s bestselling novel and has been drawing praise from every corner of the world since launching earlier this year. Steve was the artist on the book so feel free to demand a signature from him so that you can flog it on ebay treasure it forever.
A word of warning, FH has sold out at almost every convention it’s appeared at so if you want a copy then you might want to get down early.
3 – Oxicomics Digital Comic Revolution
Oxicomics is a company that we’re going to be talking about a whole lot over the coming weeks. With the impending launch of their new app, Oxi are all set to do for indy comics what Comixology has done for mainstream books. If you like digital comics then you’re going to be blown away by some of the stuff that they have in the works.
The Oxi guys themselves can’t be at MCM as they’ll be busy at the app’s official launch in Oslo however they’re sending over a load of info on the project for us to show off. If you’re curious about it all then drop by the BTB stand and we’ll be happy to give you the info.
4 – Our New Comics!
Steve and I have no fewer than FOUR new comic books coming out later this year. In addition to Moon #2 and Fallen Heroes #2 we’re also heavily involved in the Tales of the Fallen project. We’ll be revealing more about these books over the next few weeks but if you want a few cheeky details then drop by the stand and we’ll try to answer as many questions as we’re allowed to by the powers that be.
5 – A Very Special Guest!
We don’t want to get you too excited but there is an outside chance that there may be a surprise guest appearance from somebody very close to all of our hearts. I couldn’t possibly say who that could be but if you’re a fan of the comic then you’re not going to want to miss this.
Ray and Moon taking reviewing their latest case
Of course there are about a thousand other reasons to drop by MCM this week including an appearance by Warren Ellis, the 2011 Eagle Awards and a chance to get a first look at all of this year’s biggest films, games and comics. In light of the competition from Kapow, MCM has sworn to up their game even more this year so if ever there was a comic con to check out, this is the one.
Look out for this stand while you're at MCM and be rewarded with sweet Moon merch!
You can find full details and order tickets over at the MCM website. We look forwards to seeing you there.
