Issue 1 and 2 made their debut at the Cardiff Independent Comic Expo, Issue 3 will be released into the wild at ICE in Birmingham on Saturday 15th September and Issue 4, which concludes our opening story arc, lands at Thought Bubble in Leeds.

Dave and Pete will both be at ICE and Dave will be with our publisher Deadstar at Thought Bubble.  If you aren’t able to attend these conventions, Deadstar will be attending a number of other cons in 2018 and of course you can buy direct from the Deadstar website too.

Seven Shades launched in Cardiff

Messrs Clifford and Rogers, along with Dexter’s Half Dozen co-creator and writer Jamie Lambert attended the Cardiff Independent Comic Expo last Saturday. The 10th anniversary issue of Dexter’s debuted at the show along with Issue 1 & 2 of Seven Shades.

The book sold well and most people picked up both issues, which got them a free set of four stickers (one for each of the first arc’s covers). Our esteemed publisher Deadstar have also begun shopping copies to anyone who pre-ordered online. 

Feedback so far has been good and we’re excited to launch more issues later this year. We’re also adding a letters page to Issue 4, so if you’ve already read our first two issues we’d love to hear from you. Or maybe you want to send some fan art for us to share.
