Neil Gaiman in Chapters, Dublin, February 17th [Jan. 24th, 2009|09:16 am]
Irish Comics & Cartoons

For those of you who read Neil Gaiman's blog, his most recent post has this sentence tucked away in it:

Which reminds me: Jameson Dublin Film Festival. I'll be there on February the 15th, when they will be screening Coraline. And, for anyone in Dublin -- or indeed, in Ireland -- who missed the signing last year, I will be doing a reading and signing in Chapters in Parnell Street on Feb the 17th at 5pm. Perhaps with an as-yet-unnamed Special Musical Guest.

Yes, this is the bookshop where I work, and, yes, I am feeling very pleased with myself. Oh yes, I also know who the as-yet-unnamed Special Musical Guest is, but my lips are sealed!

One of the tags on the bottom of Neil's post is, "Yes you could use the internet to figure out who I'm appearing with in Ireland but really now wouldn't that be cheating?"

Dublin Comic Jam [Jan. 16th, 2009|12:35 pm]
Irish Comics & Cartoons


I've just had an email about an upcoming comic jam organised by Dublin Comic Jam:

"Hello there,

there's going to be another comic jam upstairs in the Lord Edward pub on Dame street, Thursday 22nd January at 8pm if you're on for it.

New year, new pristine pages to deface sequentially, as a group.

Bring your own pens and drawing instruments - paper is provided."

Given how much fun I've had at every comic jam I've gone to, I'd definitely encourage anyone interested to give it a go.

Upcoming events and links [Oct. 1st, 2008|12:02 pm]
Irish Comics & Cartoons

First of all, upcoming events:

24 Hour Comic Day will be happening again in Dublin at the Central Hotel on the 18th and 19th of October. Come along to draw comics, read comics, buy or sell comics! This will also be the initial release point for the boards.ie Comic Forum Zine (a free A5 black & white comic featuring small-press artists).

Irish Free Comic Day will also be happening on the 18th of October, with the major comic shops around Ireland taking part. Free comics goodness from the likes of Bob Byrne, Rob Curley, Alan Nolan, Ian Whelan, Declan Shalvey and more! In addition to this there should be an anthology released on the day featuring the best of Irish independent comic artists.

Slightly further ahead in the calendar, the 3rd annual Dublin City Comic Con is coming up on the 22nd & 23rd of November, and it should be better than ever by the look of things. Tickets can be booked online at the official website.

Now, links worthy of your time:

www.thecomiccast.com - fortnightly podcast about comics both Irish and foreign by Liam Geraghty and Craig O'Connor. Well worth a listen, as they alternate between discussion of comics and interviews with folks in the Irish comics scene.

http://irishcomics.wikia.com/wiki/Irish_Comics_Wiki - the new home for the Irish Comics wiki, migrated from the old one at pbwiki.com due to better software availability.

http://www.theblackbirdgallery.com/ - the Blackbird Gallery in Kilkenny is now offering workshops in Manga and Comic Illustration as well as life drawing.

Irish comics wiki [Jun. 18th, 2008|02:46 pm]
Irish Comics & Cartoons

It seems someone has set up an Irish Comics Wiki, which seems to be a good way of sharing info about the irish comics scene, in the absence of any definitive source (although the Irish Sci-Fi website isn't far off from being one).

If you're interested and have the time to spare, sign up and create some articles. Even if you're not, keep an eye on it - hopefully given time and effort, it should grow to become a useful resource and map of the irish comics scene.
