Wicked Comics the organisers of the annual Malta Comic Convention (MCC) and the promoters of comic culture world wide are proud to announce MIKE CAREY as their first guest to the forthcoming Malta Comic Con which this year is going to happen on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December 2012 at St. James Cavalier (all floors), Valletta between 10am and 6pm on both days.

Mike Carey who was born in Liverpool in 1959 is often considered as one of the best contemporary writers, who has written proficiently for both the comic and the novel medium. Mike Carey’s early work consisted of independently published comics which include a biographical one-shot on Ozzy Osborne and a fantasy one-shot on the band Pantera titled Power in Darkness. Countless publications followed including extensive work for 2000 AD, DC Comics/Vertigo and Marvel.

We cannot but be delighted and excited that such a talented writer as Mike Carey has kindly accepted our invitation to be one of our guests at this years’ MCC. Mike’s extensive bibliography is as impressive as is the quality of his work. I have yet to read something bearing Mike’s signature which has failed to impress me” stated Chris Le Galle, Co-Founder of Wicked Comics.

Mike Carey has worked extensively in the field of comic books, completing long and critically acclaimed runs on X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four and Lucifer. His ongoing comic book series for DC Vertigo, The Unwritten, has featured repeatedly in the New York Times’ graphic novel bestseller list, and he has been nominated for eleven Eisner Awards. He is also the writer of the Felix Castor novels, of which five are now in print in the UK and three in the US, and (along with his wife Linda and their daughter Louise) of the Arabian Nights-style entertainment, The Steel Seraglio, released in the US by ChiZine Publications in March 2012 and due to be published in the UK by Victor Gollancz in 2013.
