Mike Collins signing and sketching at Asylum in Aberdeen this weekend!

12141148_915657618483696_6664840319726896692_oThe fine folks at Asylum Books & Games have put together another great event with acclaimed artist Mike Collins appearing in store on Saturday 24th October from 10.00 – 18.00. Mike will be signing, sketching and chatting all day.

Boasting a 25-plus year career in the comics business, Mike has worked on a who’s who of comic book characters over the years; Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Flash, Teen Titans, X-Men (where he introduced Gambit to the Marvel Universe), Captain Britain, Judge Dredd, Slaine, Rogue Trooper, Darkstars, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt and many more.

He’s also currently working as a storyboard artist on Doctor Who and Sherlock for the BBC, and his latest project is a Sherlock Adult Colouring Book for BBC Books.

Mike is also committed to using comics as an educational tool, running workshops in schools and libraries throughout Wales, targeting ‘reluctant learners’, and was heavily involved in the “Read A Million Words In Wales” initiative.

Definitely worth stopping by if you’re in the area (or even making the journey to see a fantastic comic creator in such a relaxed atmosphere).

Oh, and if you’re looking for a sketch from Mike, they come highly recommended, as I recently picked up this bad boy from him at LSCC earlier this year.
