IDW Publishing Writer Simon Furman has posted another update on his blog. This update tells us of his current convention appearances and an addition to the mix. Taken from the man himself:
Squeezing its way into a packed few months of signings, conventions and personal appearances (post Bristol Comic Expo and pre-Derry con) is the London MCM expo (at the Exel Centre, Royal Victoria Dock). I’ll be there this Saturday (May 24th), along with a clutch of other comics writers and artists, and I’ll be bringing with me a whole heap of Transformers stuff to sign and sell, including scripts, books and comics. For more information on MCM go here.
So for UK fans who couldn't make it to the Bristol Comic Expo, heres another chance to meet the man, the myth, the legend that is Simon Furman.
