Watchmen is my favourite graphic novel of all time! Time to get it signed by the legendary Mr Gibbons (if possible).

 

Even if it's just a talk, I'm thrilled!

Just read the bottom bit! Sounds like he won't have time for commissions, but to meet him again would be nice!

 

Ta,

Autographs from Comic Zone guests are generally free, though the prices for artwork/sketches, etc. are at the guest's discretion (though Dave Gibbons will only be signing for this event). You do no have to attend the talk to get his autograph, though please keep in mind that he will have until the end of the event for signings after the panel and interview. All Comic Zone Panels are free (except for Stan Lee), and seats are taken on a first come, first served basis, so there are no virtual tickets. :smile:

Would Dave only be signing the graphic novel/comic books, or would he also sign my Watchmen DVD?

So now we know Stan Lee talk is at 4pm, would the comic gold pass holders be able to make it from one to the other without loosing there place? It doesn't look like it.

 

Also what time does the show close on Sunday? I would hope to leave Stan Lee talk and walk over to DAVE GIBBONS and join the queue and get to say hello and get my book signed ? :thumbup:

Open til 6pm on Sunday.

 

I also have a Comic Gold Pass and would love Dave Gibbons to sign my WATCHMEN hardcover and WATCHING THE WATCHMEN hardcover.

Did anyone meet Dave Gibbons, I went over to E2 at 4pm for a signing, to catch him after the hour long interview but was told he had gone! So much for "signing until the show closes"!

He was there at 3. A few very small signs were up telling you where to see him and i was lucky enough to spot one. His queue was pretty short, suggesting to me that many didn't know about where he would be and at what time. He was tucked into a noisy corner for his talk too. Disrespectful if you ask me!

Shocking treatment!

I was really looking forward to meeting Dave, aside from Stan the only other guest I wanted to meet. I did see a small white sign on a pillar with "gibbo's" or some such written on it as I was leaving. Decided to cut my losses then and make the 4 hour trek home...
