Here is a selection of photos from February’s Transformers themed Belfast Comic Mart.
Tickets are now on sale for our May 19th Comic Mart at The Clayton Hotel, Belfast through our ticketing agent Eventbrite and PayPal.
Andy Luke is a cartoonist and prose novelist from Belfast. His recent comic, ‘We Shall Not Be Stapled’, is a multi-creative jam with Northern Irish humour at it’s core. He’ll be selling copies of that irreverent anthology, along with books by collaborators, Dubliner John Robbins and Brighton-spark Sean Duffield.
Andy’s widely read ‘Hold the Phones, It’s Alex Jones’ comics were adapted into his debut novel, ‘Axel America and the U.S. Election Race’. Frighteningly prescient on Trump, and therefore surreal to the point of scientific, Andy has not sold out. Also a festival runner; co-producer and host of ‘The Invisible Artist’, an NVTV doc on Belfast’s comics history, so why not check that out on Youtube tonight?

Michael Gordon is a comics writer from Northern Ireland. He is the writer of Transdimensional, a 4-issue sci-fi/horror miniseries that is being published by TPub Comics in the UK. It tells the story of Deacon Price, an underwater archaeologist who charters an expedition, under false pretences, to a downed Soviet submarine that has been missing for decades. The horrors he and his crew find down there will change their lives forever, as well as potentially the lives of everyone they’ve ever known! Read more
Stephen O’Callaghan is another up and coming illustrator/artist from Newry.
In 2012 David Louden released the roman á clef novel, Lost Angeles. Since then he has been published regularly on the anthology short story site, Literally Stories, and in the University of Rhodes’ school for the Advancement of English’s biannual poetry magazine, New Coin.
