July is Comic Con month! And SA will be there!

July is gearing up to be a very exciting month for SA Comics! And for UO Comics.

The Velocity Anthology issue #4 is set to launch at San Diego Comic Con on 26 July.
If you're at the con, make sure you don't miss the panel: "Velocity, in pursuit of the southern hemisphere comics industry" on Saturday, 26th, 5:30-6:30pm, room 24ABC!
Neville Howard (Velocity AUS), Daniel Hugo (Oneironaut) and Rupert Greyling  will be there, and hopefully Moray Rhoda (Velocity SA) will be joining them. They will be talking about the recent rise of comics from South Africa and Australia.
UO Comics will be represented by a special full color version of Gofu that is published in Velocity issue #4, and hopefully some sample copies of Gofu 1 and 2 as well as Tomica, if we can get them to San Diego!


This Saturday ( 6 July) there is a special pre-launch of Velocity 4 at Reader's Den comic shop in Claremont, Cape Town, with several contributing artists on hand to sign your book! Copies are limited, so get there early! More launches are planned in Johannesburg, Sidney and Melbourne, so keep an eye open for updates!


But that's not all...
This month Heavy Metal Magazine #269 (just THE biggest sci-fi comics mag in the western world, if you didn't know), has awesome cover art by South Africa artist, Eben de Waal, and Chis Beukes's comic, Apocalypse Chef inside! This makes me very excited at the prospect that some eyes may indeed already be on the SA comics community.


So much happening in SA comics at the moment!
