Don't forget that I will be at Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Sydney, Australia this weekend (and Perth the following weekend). Jon
will also be at the Sydney show (we're pretty much all sitting in the same area in Artist's Alley), so swing by if you're in Sydney that weekend, and say hi.
I'll have some copies of X-Men DWS #2 for sale, plus a bunch of other single issues and trades I've worked on, and some prints too. I'll also be selling sketches and a couple of one-off originals.
Anyway you can find details about the show at Supanova's website: www.supanova.com.au

At long last, Magik is returning to the Marvel Universe! But in what form will she return, and to whom will she owe her allegiance? In a touching tale of death and acceptance originally presented in X-MEN UNLIMITED #13, the X-Man Colossus continues to mourn the loss of his beloved sister, the telepathic mutant mystic known as Magik. Meanwhile, in a story from NEW X-MEN #37, Magik's origin is explored and her former master, the demon-lord Belasco returns! Fighting his way through hostile terrain and vicious demon hordes, Belasco will stop at nothing to wrest control of Limbo. But the evil sorceress standing in his way bears a striking resemblance to his former protégé. And finally, from X-MEN: DIVIDED WE STAND #2, Magik has indeed returned but she's trapped in Limbo, a slave to Belasco! Illyana yearns for her freedom and family, but she must find the lost pieces of her soul, the bloodstones, if she is to escape and defeat Belasco once and for all!

And lastly if anyone in Melbourne is after a large format scanner, I just saw this Epson 1640XL on eBay: [link]
. I don't have anything to do with the seller, but thought maybe someone wants to grab a top notch scanner (this is the same model I have) at a (currently) decent price. Only one day to go on the auction (0 bids so far), and the winning bidder has to pick it up from Melbourne.
