Hey there. I’ve just added the comic shows I’ll be appearing at this year to the sidebar, so thought I’d make a note of them here in the blog too. Here goes:

Toronto Comics Art Festival
May 7th-8th, Toronto Reference Library, Toronto, Canada
London MCM Expo
May 27th-29th, ExCel Centre, Royal Victoria Dock, London
Birmingham Zine Festival
July 9th, We Are Birmingham Shop, Birmingham
Manchester MCM Expo
July 31st, Manchester Central, Manchester
November 19th-20th, Royal Armories, Leeds
It’s been a while since I’ve blogged on this old webcomic, so I hope there’s people still subscribed and reading this out there. I’d like to introduce you to or remind you of the 2010 Eagle Awards, the UK’s only comics industry awards which have been running since 1976. They are currently in the nominations process right now which means that anyone can nominate any comic, artist or writer they want. Nominations with the highest votes go on to be shortlisted. This means that popular webcomics with large audiences can get noticed much more easily. If you’ve enjoyed my work over the years it would be wonderful if you could show support and nominate The Everyday for ‘Favourite Web-Based Comic’ or nominate The Everyday Collection 4 in the ‘Favourite British Comicbook: Black and White‘ categories. Or you could even vote for me in the ‘Favourite Writer/Artist’, though I’m sure you have other favourites.
Oh, and please fill out as much of the form as you can, so no votes get dismissed as a ballot stuffing attempt. Thank you.
I’ve also recently received a rather good review on the podcast Tales from the Parent’s Basement which is running a show called The Indie 500 wherein Doc Zane aka Jim Schwitzer attempts to review 500 indie comics. This first episode starts off with 11 reviews including The Everyday and other notable British comics such as The Rainbow Orchid, Granville and Some People by that Luke person.

Lastly, I’ll be announcing my convention schedule for the year pretty soon, so please stay tuned to this old blog.
“Cadwell just gets better and better as the series moves along, so that these final 50 strips approach something sublime… very special stuff.”
- Richard Bruton
What better way to wake up to a grey, bleary Monday morning than to see a wholly positive review of your work? Today, Richard Bruton posts his review of The Everyday Collection Four on the Forbidden Planet International Blog and says very nice things indeed. I’ve long subscribed to the FPI blog and feel it’s a must read for anyone in the UK with any kind of interest in comics and graphic novels. Thanks again to Richard and the guys at FPI for their continued support of my work.
Here it is at last, The Everyday Collection Four, the final comic collecting the last 50 strips of The Everyday!
Guest comics from Marc Ellerby, John Allison, Joe Decie, Joe List, Andrew Tunney and the lovely Kayla Marie Hillier!
An Hourly Comic Day minicomic!
a badge or two if you’re lucky!
£4 and it’s yours!
Too many exclamation marks? Too many exclamation marks.
Click the cover above for a closer look and then ask me, “Adam, where I can purchase such a fine piece of comics?” and then I’ll charmingly reply, “Why, at this weekend’s MCM Expo in London, of course! Or, you know, on the new Everyday online store.”
So yes, there’s a fancy new store on the site and the news that this Halloween weekend I shall be in London’s Docklands for the cosplay chaos that is the MCM Expo. The Comics Village section of it grows and grows each time attracting some really big names and is now as big as most other comic cons in the country.
I’ll be there sharing with wonderful Marc Ellerby, selling the new collection as well as NEW BADGES (which you can also buy in the Store) including two badges that match the cover of the new Collection. Mind blowing, eh?
And I’ll once again be doing Little You Portraits for a mere £5 a pop on A5 card. Here’s a nifty slideshow of the ones I did last year:
Please note that if you order anything from the Store I won’t be able to post them out until next week after the show, because I’ll be a panicky mess ’til after then. Thanks.
So, hopefully I’ll see some of you at the show and you’ll be able to spot me because I’ll either be dressed as Adam from The Everyday or Skeletor, one of the two.
