The 2015 con season is almost at an end, but we’ve got one more show to close out the year. Next weekend, Claire will be joining a who’s who of comics talent at Thought Bubble, the Leeds Comic Art Festival. Going to TB? You can check us out at table 91 in the TB Marquee exhibit area from November 14th to 15th. Due to the limited space (we’re restricted to a half table), the merch selection will be a little more selective than at MCM London, but there’ll be plenty of copies of both Drugs and Wires #1 and the new third printing of Daily Struggles of a Cyberjunkie!
Yep, it’s that time of year again: fall con season! This week, Cryoclaire will be repping the D&W at London MCM Comic Con. From Friday to Sunday, you can swing by booth CK4 at the Comic Village for prints, badges, postcards, on-the-spot sketch commissions, and the all-new print edition of Drugs & Wires: Clear and Sober Living.
A couple of weeks ago, we started streaming Claire’s inking and coloring for D&W on Picarto. Despite a few hiccups, we’ve managed to attract a lively community of readers and fellow creators, and kicked off plenty of fun discussions in the process.
Going forward, we’re moving our “regular” livestream to Wednesdays at 8 PM BST/7 PM GMT, with the occasional Saturday livestream thrown in when scheduling allows. This gives Claire more time to prep the page, and will hopefully make the stream a little more interesting in the process.
As before, streams will be announced on Claire’s Tumblr and Twitter accounts about an hour or so before they kick off. Most streams usually feature both of us, so it’s your chance to chat with the D&W team, get some insights into our creative process, and ask those burning (spoiler-free) questions.
A big and hearty “thank you” to everybody who came out to see Cryoclaire and Will – our Head of Keen and D&W Hypeman-at-Large – at MCM last weekend! We sold plenty of stuff (including the very last copies of Dreamspace: Analogue Edition and the first of our all-new Cyborg Trash sketch commissions) and met some wonderful fans and creators along the way. But if you didn’t get a chance to stop by, never fear: we’re hoping to be back in town come October.
Still need more Dan in your life? Besides our usual range of buttons, prints and postcards, you can also snag a copy of Drugs & Wires: Daily Struggles of a Cyberjunkie, a grab-bag of D&W one-shots originally published on Claire’s Tumblr between 2012 to 2014. Comic Con will also be one of the last times you can get your hands on the D&W prequel Dreamspace: Analog Edition, at least for the foreseeable future. As of the time of writing, there’s less than 20 copies left from the initial print run, and we’re still mulling whether to do a reprint once those run out.
Finally, there’s sketch commissions, where just £5 gets you a Cryoclaire original to take home. All said, there’s plenty to see, do, and buy, so be there!
Or, you know, don’t be. We’re not the boss of you.
Composer Neon Shudder has been a long-time fixture in Dan and Lin’s messed-up world, having contributed backing tracks to both the second and third installments of Dreamspace. His latest EP, Hex Phase, is now available for streaming and pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp, and features some pixel-tastic cover art from our very own Cryoclaire! If you’re in the mood for some old-school, synth-driven ambience with a distinct cyberpunk flavor, definitely give Hex Phase a spin.
