Mark Millar & Frank Quitely appear at Plan B!

 

Page 45 in Non-Self-Serving Shock!

You read it right, Highlanders: both Mark Millar and Frank Quitely will be boozin’ and a-schmoozin’ at Plan B Books in Glasgow!

“Stephen, your geography is appalling!”

Hey, I’d travel miles to be with those two, especially in such an informal gathering. I’m sure they’ll be signing. Scrawling. Drunkenly.

“When?!”

26th November 2010. More details in a second!

Mark Millar wrote my favourite superhero series of all time:

ULTIMATES SEASON ONE volume 1
ULTIMATES SEASON ONE volume 2
ULTIMATES SEASON TWO volume 1
ULTIMATES SEASON TWO volume 2

Also, the best Wolverine story by a very wide margin:

WOLVERINE: OLD MAN LOGAN plus
AMERICAN JESUS
CIVIL WAR
MARVEL 1985
KICK-ASS
FANTASTIC FOUR: WORLD’S GREATEST
FANTASTIC FOUR: MASTER OF DOOM
WANTED
ULTIMATE X-MEN
Ultimate Fantastic Four
LIBERTY COMICS #1

Look, just pop him in our search engine, eh?

Frank Quitely drew the best-ever Superman ever:

ALL-STAR SUPERMAN vol 1
ALL-STAR SUPERMAN vol 2

Also amongst other things:

SANDMAN: ENDLESS NIGHTS
We3
BATMAN & ROBIN volume 1
NEW X-MEN ULTIMATE COLLECTION volume 1
NEW X-MEN ULTIMATE COLLECTION volume 2
BATMAN INTERNATIONAL
Vertigo Resurrected #1
Missionary Man
JLA: Earth 2

Whilst together they created:

AUTHORITY volume 2
AUTHORITY volume 3
AUTHORITY volume 4 

It’s all in the details! 

The time: 5pm until Tom calls it a day! Ah, but the man has stamina.
The date: Friday 26th November 2010. That’s this coming Friday!!
The place: Plan B Books, 5 Osborne St, Glasgow G1 5RB. Scotland, apparently.

Attendance is free! 

“Do I have to be Scottish?”
Of course you do.
“But in all honesty…?”
I seriously doubt it.
“Why are you even advertising this?”
I have absolutely no idea. 

Please buy your books from Plan B if you’re attending – it’s only polite. Email ahead for availability, I have no idea what they stock. Seriously, email ahead, ask for their number, buy with your card so they won’t waste stock if you don’t turn up, and then revel in Mark and Frank’s kindness and wit. shop@planbbooks.co.uk 

Otherwise feel free to go nuts on our website. 

Bonus! A letter: 

Sir, 

It has come to my attention that due to incredibly popular demand that the Page 45 advert is showing again – all this week on the very humble Cerebus TV. 

http://www.cerebustv.com/ 

Your mighty words on your illuminating blog have brought us a whole slew of viewers for which words are woefully inadequate, but needless to say we are eternally grateful. 

Sir, if I may be so bold to state, being one that is sound of mind and pure of heart that if this intrepid venture continues, you could well be moving beyond just being Semi Legendary to scale the plateau and become a complete legend… there’s even talk that you might get knighted (or was that knotted?!) 

I trust this meets with your whole-hearted approval. 

Yours, cordially

(Brave) Sir Robin 

I have no heart. 

CEREBUS is referenced in Mark Millar’s MARVEL 1985. Check out the review!

We are: 

Nothing to do with Plan B. 

They are: Tom Green and Pete Renshaw. And we like what they’re doing.

Big shout-out to everyone at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend! I know for a fact that Jamie McKelvie, Bryan Talbot, Marc Ellerby and Ellen Lindner are there, all waiting to sign and sketch for you. Jeepers, I’ve just spotted Becky Cloonan and John Romita Jr. on their site. Someone grab me a Cloonan sketch if you can! DEMO rocks! And I know one of our customers would cry if you could find him three small lines approximating a head by young mister Romita. Wish I’d kept McKelvie’s early drawings and pretended I lost them.
