OVERLOAD #1 at KAPOW! This Weekend
The above is the cover of Overload #1, a new anthology comic edited by my good friend (and Discharged editor) Martin Conaghan. The above image references the lead-off story by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby and Eoin Coveney involving zombies, the Prime Minister, and zombie Prime Ministers.
Overload #1 will be for sale at Mark Millar’s KAPOW! convention this weekend in London, at table 34, for a mere £4. I’m told there will be a digital edition of this soon as well. Also, Martin is doing portfolio reviews and story pitches on Saturday and Sunday at 13:00 BST.
For my part, I have a 6-pager called “Omen” (that I already showed off unlettered pages for), drawn by Steve Penfold, and lettered by good ol’ Jim Campbell. It too has a certain political criticism in it, involving a parody of a certain right wing apocalypse cult masquerading as a news channel, but it also features the Be-All End-All Giant Daikaiju Monster, designed for me many moons ago by Jacen Burrows before he got all famous drawing Crossed and Neonomicon ‘n shit.
If you’d like to see more of what Overload has to offer, check out this preview.
Enjoy. I’ll be off the grid for the next few days.
