Cardiff Comic Con, Swansea Doctor Who Day

Wales! Wales, Wales, Wales! Soon I will be all over you, like a bottle of Hai Karate splashed over a hirsute man!

All of which means, I'll be at two events are coming up soonish in Wales:

Cardiff Comic Con, 31st August to 1st September - I'll be there with the VS Comics team, showing off Day & Night, and the lovely new 64 page collection of Eponymous, which will premiere there. It looks like it'll be a great event, so come and find us at our table. If that's not enough for you, the other guests include Sarah Douglas (Ursa!), Kai Owen (Rhys!), Alice Krige (Borg Queen!), Lance Henriksen (Bishop!), Dave Prowse (Darth Vader!) and Brian Blessed (BRIAN BLESSED!) And way, way more guests, who are all really cool. I'll be there both days, all day.

Doctor Who Day, Swansea, Saturday 2nd November - at the Dylan Thomas Centre, this is a special event to celebrate Doctor Who. I'll be there with Phil Ford, Simon Guerrier, Joe Lidster, David Llewellyn, Una McCormack, and Louise Jameson (Leela!), talking about the show. This is my second time ever in Swansea - my first time was many years ago, waiting for a ferry to arrive, so this HAS to be better!

Details and tickets etc are at the links above. And yes, you can bring DVDs or anything to sign if you want - people at the last comic convention were very apologetic about bringing DVDs instead of comics, but I'm more than happy that you bought them, so go for it. Hope to see some of you there!

Cockneys Vs Zombies US DVD details

Cockneys Vs Zombies has just had a lovely, limited cinema release in the USA, and is still on VOD platforms there - but it's also heading for DVD and Blu-ray, on September 3rd. You can pre-order it now, or wait until it's out, or get it in "stores"! The choice is yours!

Unique to this US edition are deleted scenes, and a full commentary from director Matthias, and also one from me! It's the one I recorded myself and put here for free, but it's actually on the disc (like on the Tower Block US discs). Thanks to the excellent folk at Shout Factory for arranging that on both movies.

Dread Central have the first mention of the story here, along with the cover art and specs details. September 3rd! Have a butchers!

Cockneys Vs Zombies US release August 2nd

People of America! Cockneys Vs Zombies is released in your fair nation today, August 2nd, in selected cinemas and also on VOD at the same time, so you have several ways to get it.

Click here for a list of cinemas and VOD locations - try to see it on the big screen if you can, it's a fun crowd movie. But it'll be almost everywhere, and then on DVD and Blu-ray September 3rd. If you do the iTunes thing, you can rent or buy it RIGHT HERE!

Click here for the UK red band trailer - it's like the US red band trailer, but with way more swearing and violence, to give you a good idea of what sort of movie you're getting. If you like the song playing in the second half of that trailer, it's Mother of Girl by Eighteen Nightmares at the Lux.

Click here for a video podcast featuring me explaining Cockney rhyming slang - including two examples that you probably already use.

Seen the movie and enjoyed the score by Jody Jenkins? Grab the soundtrack from here.

Please do catch it where you can, we all put a lot of love and passion into the movie, and I'm really proud of it. I know you've had to wait a while, but hopefully it'll be worth the wait. Now go! Go see it!

By the way, you can still buy Tower Block over there on DVD and Blu-ray, so check it out if you like the look of it. Click here for the US trailer.
