3MY Round-Up: Holidays Comings & Then Cons
The Latest Round-Up From 3 Million Years
In The Beginning
I’ve got the mood for my summer holiday. Coming soon, but not soon enough. Even so, I look forward to rest, sun and fun with the family. I will, of course, be letting you all know so you know there will be some quiet while I am away. Hopefully, you will all get some time off as well.
After that, I will be gearing up for a couple of conventions. In October, I am going to MCM London, which has some news on some of their site about guests coming already. I will also be up at Thought Bubble in November.

It is now getting to the point where people are asking what will come first:
Meanwhile, embarrassingly, Frazer Brown and Red Cabin Comics are posting about San Diego Comic-Con, awards and future projects. It’s all a little sad, with comments being switched off on various social media posts (Reddit, Instagram) or blocking away (Bluesky). I can’t help but shake my head. Yes, I was lucky to get a refund, but this spectacle seems to have no way of slowing. There has been communication with the charities that were supposed to benefit, as well as some various legal aspects. I can’t even bring myself to read the digital copy that someone sent to me, and I love a lot of the talent involved.
Funding on Kickstarter now is Seventh Sister #1 from Fox Red Comics - kicking off a new series. Check out my review below and the link to the campaign.
Coming soon from CEX is The Miracles.
