I was lucky enough to be asked by Tripwire Magazine‘s EIC Joel Meadows to participate in this years Portsmouth Comic Con, the second year for the show held at the historic Portsmouth Guildhall over the Bank Holiday Weekend of Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2019. Joel, Contributing Editor Andrew Colman and the entire Guildhall team put on quite the celebration of comics and pop culture, filling every available square inch of space with artists alleys, vendors, retailers, exhibitions and panels – it was quite the experience!
Another incredible guest for the show to land is comics legend Steve Englehart, a man who resume reads like the defining books of American comics. While best known for books published at both Marvel Comics and DC Comics in the ’70s and ’80s, Englehart’s creativity has touched into prose, film and television, winning many awards and plaudits over the years and still creating today.
Tripwire EIC Joel Meadows talks to Steve for just under an hour – time which barely allows to cover all of the books that he has worked on over his career…
Thanks to the entire Portsmouth Comic Con team for their help in putting on these panels, and to Joel and Andrew for the invitation to participate.
Portsmouth Comic Con is confirmed as returning to the city’s Guildhall in 2020, over the Bank Holiday weekend of Saturday 2nd / Sunday 3rd May. Find out more about the show at their official website, www.portsmouthcomiccon.com
