I’ll be back in New York next week for the NY Comic Convention. You’ll find me at the AbramComicArts table much of the time. Hope to see some of you there.

Edinburgh International Book Festival and Bell Burnell

My Edinburgh International Book Festival experience was excellent. I really enjoyed it. Very good turn out at my and Karine Marcal’s joint event. A blazingly hot day too. 
The private talk I did for festival sponsors, investment management partnership Baillie Gifford, also went well. I was worried about doing this talk, because my work has been so critical of the financial industry. I thought it might be a hostile crowd, but they were all perfectly nice. I was actually picked up at the hotel by a taxi and driven to their flash Edinburgh HQ - a very imposing glass edifice with a striking view across the Firth of Forth. 

Here's are three pages from a story about the astronomer Jocelyn Bell Burnell. This strip is a chapter of a book I'm working on about scientists. I'll be covering a number of people, among who are Fred Hoyle, and Antoine Lavoisier. Others I've yet to decide on. Feel free to make suggestions.
