The Standard Coming to Kapow Comic Con!
May 8, 2012
On Saturday 19th May and Sunday 20th May, the Business Design Centre in Islington, London will host the 2nd annual Kapow Comic Con. In amongst the high-profile creators and the wide range of exhibitors in attendance, you’ll be able to pick up an exclusive graphic novel of The Standard, collecting the first 3 issues of the 6-part series!
This 92-page graphic novel will be debuting at the show, priced at £10, and I’ll be there in person to promote it. I have a table on the show floor, under the banner of the Glasgow League of Writers. We are a collective of Glasgow-based comic creators, and several of our members – including Gordon McLean, writer of the critically-acclaimed No More Heroes, and Colin Bell, writer of the super-cool cult webcomic Jonbot VS Martha, among others – will be in attendance at the show. Be sure to come find us at Kapow Con: you’ll be able to pick up The Standard, Volume 1 and a range of other quality GLoW titles!
The Standard is a 6-issue comic book miniseries, the story of two different men from two different eras who share the same heroic legacy. But when a catastrophic event brings the two generations into collision, The Standard is forced to ask if superheroes still have a place in today’s cynical world. The Standard #3 is published by ComixTribe. The comic is written by me, John Lees, drawn by Jonathan Rector, colored by Mike Gagnon, lettered by Kel Nuttall and edited by Steven Forbes.
