Derry abú and Film Night
Thanks to the organisers and attendees of the 2-D Comic book Festival in Derry for giving me a warm, friendly welcome last weekend, and to all the people who bought a copy of issue 1 of Róisín Dubh: thank you very much!
It was a terrific, fun event and I’ll do my utmost to be there next year.
Robert Curley will be signing copies of Róisín Dubh issue 1 on Tuesday, the 14th of June from 6.30pm onwards at the Sugar Club, Leeson Street in Dublin as part of its Short Film Night.
A short documentary about the similarities between the comic and filmmaking process will be shown, along with other short films.

Welcome Stephen Byrne
We’d like to welcome artist Stephen Byrne officially to the Róisín Dubh project!
Stephen will be drawing and lettering issue 2 and 3 of Róisín Dubh, as well as the covers for all three issues.
He’s already been handing in some cracking work on the title, and we look forward to sharing his work with you in the coming months.
Point Village Comic Book Festival
The first Point Village Comic Book Festival is taking place tomorrow at the newly-opened Point Village Market in Dublin, from 11am – 5pm.
There will be loads of people representing small press comics from all over Ireland, as well as workshops about comic books mostly geared at the under-18s.
Rob Curley, Stephen Daly and I will be at the Atomic Diner stand, representing Róisín Dubh, so feel free to drop by and say hello to the three of us.
This weekend the Bristol International Comic & Small Press Expo is taking place – the annual comic book Mecca in the UK.
Both Rob Curley and Stephen Daly will be attending, promoting Róisín Dubh and handing out preview issues of the comic book. If any of you are going to the Expo, make sure to drop by the Atomic Diner stand and say hello to both of them.
Fingers crossed that the Icelandic ash cloud of doom decides to fume away from Ireland and the UK for the next few days!
Finally, a big thank you to screenwriter/author/comic book writer Paul Cornell for plugging Róisín Dubh on his blog last week. His kind words had us all ablush.
