ICE Brighton: Showcasing Local Comics Talent

One of the reasons we chose to hold our Summer Special event in Brighton was the huge amount of local grassroots comic creation going on there. Very much like Birmingham, as well as a high population of big name creators like David Hine and David Lloyd there are also many other professional and small press creators creating top comics in the famous seaside town.

As such we have invited many to attend as guests for the expo and here are just two of those confirmed to date:

Ollie Masters is a Brighton based writer. His work includes The Kitchen for Vertigo Comics, Snow Blind and Sons Of Anarchy: Redwood Original for BOOM! plus work on Wonderwoman for DC and the X-Men for Marvel.

Bob Molesworth  got his first comic job illustrating Star Wars Clone Wars comics for Titan UK. He then went on to work on Titan’s Star Wars comic followed by Star Wars Rebels and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Panini. He doesn’t really know how this happened, but is very happy that it did.

He is also the artist and co-creator of the graphic novels Dinocorps and Endangered Weapon B which were hugely fun to make and hopes that they are just as much fun to read.

So if you are a local Brigton Comic creator or small press publisher and you’d like to get involved ICE, either as a pro guest or as an exhibitor please email us at: smallzone.events@gmail.com

We would love to hear from you.
