Despite rain and gloom, a large crowd turned out to see Dan Slott signing at Orbital Comics last Saturday. People began queuing around 2pm and by 5pm the queue had snaked its way around the West Wing and down towards the front door.
Some fans had travelled from out of town and still had their suitcases with them – packed full of books for the ‘amazing’ Mr Slott to sign. And sign he did. From 5pm until just after closing time (around 7.30) Dan signed like a machine, all the while regaling the crowd with stories and anecdotes you’d never usually hear.
It was a mammoth task, but the effervescent Dan was still brimming with enthusiasm when Chris and Taylor sat him down for an in-depth interview about Spider-Island and beyond. You can listen to that interview on this week’s episode of The Orbiting Pod.
Dan was as bright, bubbly and charismatic as you’d expect from his stories, and we had a great time at dinner with him afterwards. Some of the best stories were told then, but sadly they must remain ‘off the record.’
If you missed the signing, we have very limited quantities of the Orbital Comics variant to Amazing Spider-Man #666 signed by Dan Slott for sale at the till. Grab one for yourself and make sure you keep an eye on our website for future events & signings.
