Kieron Gillen & Antony Johnston signing Tuesday October 23rd at Page 45!

Oh, dear God, what have we done?! I may have to stay home and cry.

Page 45 and GameCity7 proudly present…

Sir Antony Johnston and Dame Kieron Gillen defacing your near-mint comics and favourite graphic novels so they’ll have no resale value at all!

Yes, two of my all-time favourite writers of both mainstream and Marvel Comics have reluctantly agreed to topple off their GameCity podium on Tuesday October 23rd to sign immediately thereafter at Page 45.

“What are they doing at GameCity?!”

Uh, they write games? Also: they write about games? Antony Johnston wrote Deadspace and the imminent ZombiU. The first thing I ever read by Kieron Gillen was his mischievous game strips illustrated by PHONOGRAM’s Jamie McKelvie. I imagine they’ll sign any games and games journalism you bring with you.

“What? Where? When?”

Straight to the point: I like that.

The Time: 5pm to 6-30pm
The Date: Tuesday October 23rd 2012
The Place: Page 45 (click for destination details!)

The Dress Code: Oh, wear what you like but please wear something. That goes for you too, Gillen.

“Do You Have Comics?!”

I will have to check. *checks* Yep, turns out we’re a comic shop.

Individual issues therefore also available. Bring your own if you like, but please buy something. It isn’t the law but it’s nice.

“We know!”

“What Else Is Happening?”

The Johnston-Gillen can be found live on a panel at the GameCity hub on Market Square immediately before the signing. Recommended – they are very funny guys.

Together and separately they will also be hosting GameCity events on both Monday and Tuesday. They will be entertaing and education you on comics and games, and I do believe there’ll be a broadcast from Antenna on the Monday night but do check the GameCity blogs for details.

Big love to Iain Simons and Chris White at GameCity for their co-conspiratorialisation. It’s something I’ve cherished but doubt I can spell, so instead I made the word up.
