Page 45 & GameCity8 proudly present:
Dear Duncan Fegredo defacing your books til it hurts!
HELLBOY MIDNIGHT CIRCUS Book Launch & Bookplate!
Yes, Wednesday 23rd October sees the launch of Mike Mignola & Duncan Fegredo’s HELLBOY MIDNIGHT CIRCUS original graphic novel (all-new material, never serialised), and Page 45 will have Duncan signing and sketching here on its very day of publication!
He will sign any and all books you bring, and sketch in one too.
BUT! You don’t have to do any heavy lifting: just buy HELLBOY MIDNIGHT CIRCUS on the day! Better still, buy it now by clicking on that link and selecting “collect in-store” thereby guaranteeing you a free, signed bookplate! First come, first served! Then collect in-store!
Duncan Fegredo is one of this medium’s most gifted artists. I’ve often compared his dynamic forms, weighted hands and gesticulations to celebrated French sculptor Rodin.
On the other hand, Duncan is also a complete wastrel, as addicted to late-night gaming as I am, which is where GameCity8 comes in. With his artist’s eye and creative experience, Duncan will be appearing there too!
“When? Where? Why?!”
When: 5.30pm to 7-30pm, Wednesday October 23rd 2013
Where: Page 45, 9 Market Street, Nottingham NG1 6HY
Sorry – I mean beauty! Also laughter: Fegredo is one of the funniest folks I know. You should follow him on Twitter as @duncanfegredo
Please note: the signing itself is free! Everyone welcome! Come early, ask questions, spend money!
Duncan’s GameCity8 appearances are to be confirmed (watch this space – take breaks for coffee, but watch this space!), and see links below to keep up to date!
Warning: it is not inconceivable that I too will be involved in those events. Sorreeeee.

“What Else Is Happening?”
GameCity8 will be taking over Nottingham city centre from 19th to 26th October 2013 with two giant screens occupying the open Market Square, rotating overnight, and dozens of exhibitions, panels and performances in key locations around the city including Antenna and the Broadway Cinema. This includes live, hands-on gameplay of innovative new games – some still under development – from independent game makers, the chance to meet their writers, artists and directors and hear them talk.
GameCity has always been about breaking down the barriers, encouraging individualistic creativity and enabling fledgeling enterprises through education, which is why Page 45 has been so proud to be in partnership with them over the last couple of years. We even gave GameCity the Page 45 window in 2012 created by Philippa Rice.
Duncan will be appearing there, but I have been strictly forbidden to mention this year’s major new development, only hint. (It isn’t the big screen – though comic readers will want to watch out for news on that score too!)
Big love to Iain Simons and Lee Nicholls at GameCity for their co-conspiratorialisation. It’s something I’ve cherished but still cannot spell, so last year I made the word up.
