Speaking of Declan Shalvey, while waiting on a plane he put up a series of tweets covering the state of the Irish comics industry, which is robust.
And here’s a few of the books he mentioned:
Stephen Mooney’s Half Past Danger
Justice League. Power Rangers by Stephen Byrne
Nate Stockman on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN RENEW YOUR VOWS!
….and lots more. The Dublin based comics shop Big Bang is a prominent retail voice, and as Declan mentioned, the small press scene is growing all the time. So as with so many other local comics scenes, the Irish comics industry is finally coming into its own. Irish comics: it’s a lot more than Banshee.
