Update on Malta’s Comic Convention 2012
Hi Everyone,
I thought I would make it official that I will be attending MaltaComicCon for the fourth time in as many years, so like Sean Azzopardi I have been lucky enough to be invited along to all the Maltese Comic Conventions since 2009.

The convention has now become a main event in my diary – to which I look forward to every year. I feel extremely honoured to have been asked back each year and I cannot wait to catch up with my Maltese Friends and Fans once more.

This year will also give me the opportunity to catch up with fellow comics creators that I know already and some other guests whom I have never met before. This is the beauty of this kind of event.

As always I will be running the Children’s Comic & Fantasy Art Workshops on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, between 11:00am and 12:00pm. This is a really great way for me to start the convention as each year the children that attend, along with their parents a lot of the time, are always incredibly keen to learn how to draw comics and fantasy characters. The workshops are always extremely well attended and sometimes over-subscribed, which is always a good thing. From what the guys are telling me at the moment this is the same for December’s workshops.

I will be sketching and signing books, etc throughout the weekend, so please feel free to drop by my table and say hello – I don’t bite, honest.

Please check out my previous Blog (if you haven’t already) for information on the Fantastic Offers for Fans Travelling to the Malta Comic Con 2012!

Dates: Saturday 8th December and Sunday 9th December
Venue: St. James Cavalier (all floors), Valletta
Times: Between 10pm to 6pm - both days

An incredible line-up as you can see, well apart from the last guy on the list... I’m not too sure about him... LOL.

As I mentioned in my previous Blog, if you are new to my Blog and want to read more about the conventions, please feel free to check out my Blog Archives for November 2009, October 2010, and February, March and April 2012. You’ll need to make a brew before hand as they are quite comprehensive and maybe even some sandwiches to boot.

I am going to be taking along some pages from Worlds End – Volume 2 – A Hard Reign’s Gonna Fall, as well as the Worlds End Colouring and Storybook Book plus a few other projects in the pipeline this year. I am also trying to take along a few surprises as well. In fact, because the second book is in these early stages it feels a lot like my first visit way back in 2009 when that was the stage volume 1 was at. I am excited to hear what the Maltese folks think about my new book. You will also get an exclusive chance to view a piece of full colour art from Volume 2 as the artwork will be part of a MaltaComicCon Calendar.       

Anyhow, I have lots to do before then, so I’ll just simply say how much I look forward to meeting up with everyone at the convention – see you all soon.

Until next time, have fun!
Tim Perkins…
