San Diego, July 6th, 2015 – We have the one, the only, the legendary world creator himself STAN "THE MAN" LEE signing at the Arcana booth (2515) on Friday July 10th at 5pm. 

 Not only will Arcana be at San Diego Comic-Con in a few short days, not ONLY will we be selling exclusive merch from Pixies, Howard Lovecraft and The Steam Engines of Oz, NOT ONLY will we be holding a panel discussing all upcoming films and projects on the Friday ... but ... the legend will be on hand signing!

"BUT HOW?" you ask, as you shout at your mobile device and/or laptop. Arcana is teamed up with Stan and his company "POW! Entertainment"  for his upcoming project Stan Lee's The Unknowns a brand new world of super-powered teens fighting alien invaders sprouted from the brain of Stan Lee himself and organized by Chris "Doc" Wyatt (Iron Man: Armored Adventures) and our very own CEO and Head Honcho Sean Patrick O'Reilly. 

Obviously the co-creator of Spider-Man and walking cameo legend himself has very limited time and we WISH we could let you all shake hands, selfie, and sign to your nerdy heart's content. However, space is limited for this event so we're doing things the only fair way we know. By encouraging cross media promotion and assigning rewards at random.

SO log onto Facebook (Arcana Comics), Instagram (ArcanaStudio) , and Twitter (@ArcanaStudio). Find us, follow us, and repost our Stan Lee announcement with #ArcanaLee

Winners* will be contacted and announced and will get some face time with the Captain of Comics himself.  We look forward to seeing you all at the big show! 

*Winning is not a guarantee of interaction with Stan Lee. Some conditions may apply. Offer subject to change without notice. Arcana Studio is not responsible for any and all minds lost by interacting with a Comic Book super legend. Legal filler is hard to type. Purple monkey-dishwasher.

A huge line up of both British and globe-spanning international comics talent is being lined up for this year's Lakes International Comic Art Festival, taking place 16th – 18th October 2015.
 International guests announced so far are award-winning Canadian artist Darwyn Cooke, Simpsons Comics artist Bill Morrison (thanks to the National Cartoonists Society in the US), Boulet, Winshluss, Benoit Peeters and Antoine Cossé and Japanese Shojo manga artist Akiko Hatsu - with still more to come.

 Announced British guests include Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell, 24 Hour Marathon organiser and artist Dan Berry; graphic novelist Joe Decie, who is working on a longform project thanks to funding from the Lakes Festival; Oliver East, author of titles such as Trains Are Mint, who is working on another project with the Festival following the success of The Homesick Truant's Cumbrian Yarn; internationally-acclaimed cartoonist Hunt Emerson, creator of Calculus Cat;  author David Gaffney, who has recently been working with Dan Berry on a new graphic novel, The Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head; award winning comics writer Kieron Gillen; and UK-based stitcher and prolific tea drinker Felt Mistress AKA Louise Evans, who has created a range of one-off bespoke creatures with her partner, illustrator Jonathan Edwards, including Poblin, the Festival's mascot; and the internationally-acclaimed illustrator and graphic novelist Dave McKean.
The Family Zone –  a major part of the Festival programme, which has proved hugely popular in previous years – features a wide range of award-winning and supremely talented professional artists and writers such as author/illustrator Philip Reeve (creator of Mortal Engines), writer/illustrator Sarah McIntyre (Vern and Lettuce, Jampires); Laura Howell, trailblazing her way as the first female artist ever to work for The Beano; all the way from Springfield, The Simpsons artist Bill Morrison; inspirational concept artist Ian McQue (Grand Theft Auto); critically acclaimed duo Metaphrog (Louie); and rising star Zoom Rockman (Skanky Pigeon).
The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is the only one of its kind in the UK, taking place in one of the UK’s most beautiful areas – the English Lake District in the North West of the country, in the market town of Kendal. Modelled on European-style festivals, such as Angoulême in France, it takes over the whole town for a weekend of comic art. Its aim is to celebrate the whole spectrum of comic art, inspiring existing comic art fans and creators and, it hopes, generating new audiences and creators too. It invests in creators through a commissioning programme and has an emphasis on developing international collaborations.

 The hugely successful 2014 Festival in Kendal featured a stellar cast of both British and international creators and a number of special exhibitions, and attracted thousands of fans young and old to the Lake District town.

 The Festival’s dedicated organisers are determined to build on last year’s visitor numbers still further, reflecting their aim to deliver a truly European-style comics festival involving the whole of the local community and visitors in a truly unique comics experience. 


Festival Sponsors and Benefactors

The Patrons of the Festival are comic creators Boulet, Sean Phillips, Bryan Talbot, Mary Talbot and Emma Vieceli, and Stephen L. Holland, owner of the award-winning independent comic shop Page 45 in Nottingham.
 The Festival is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, with funding from South Lakeland District Council and Kendal Town Council working in partnership with the Brewery Arts Centre and Kendal College.
 Commercial sponsors include KendalBID, Specsavers the Westmorland Shopping Centre.

My next novel, Incident 27 is now available for pre-order on Kindle. It's the sequel to God School.

Ev Bannen is in his second year at Divine Protector Academy , the world’s only school for gods. Things are even going well in his relationship with the lovely Maya Brünhart. But suddenly, a village in the Tru Republic is attacked by refghasts. Ev and friends arrive just in time to fight them off, but then Ev is approached by a mysterious man. The man reveals a dark secret about Ev’s past—a secret the Academy has been keeping from him. With everything he knows suddenly called into question, Ev must decide where his loyalties lie as he embarks on a journey to activate the ultimate Artifact from the Tower of Babel. But running afoul of Zero Grade might be the least of his problems when the Academy’s elite decide to expel him…permanently.
