10thology book launched at Cardiff Comics Expo

This is something I've had my eye on for a while now - 10 stories, 10 pages each, by 18 of Wales' brightest comics talents is to launch at the Cardiff International Comics Expo which is being held at the Mercure Holland House Hotel on Saturday the 26th February.

Here's the 10thology press release:

Cardiff, Wales, February 26th 2011 – The Cardiff International Comic Expo (CICE) is coming and with it comes the exclusive launch of the new graphic novel '10thology'.
10thology will be released at the Cardiff International Comic Expo on Saturday 26th February 2011. Tickets are available for pre-booking online at . All advanced ticket holders to CICE will receive a promotional 10thology postcard that gives them £2.99 off the RRP of £14.99 and entry into a competition to win original 10thology art. 10thology goes on general release summer 2011 .
Welsh artist Stu.Art (Stuart Tipples) is the man behind the project and explains the idea behind the book: 'I would go to regular social meetings with the writers & artists that feature in the book to get together, catch up, and see what everyone was working on or meet up at the various comic conventions (usually taking place on the other side of the bridge). It occurred to me that there was such a wealth of Welsh talent from creators living and working in Wales at these events that we could create a very original and unique book.'

10thology features 10 stories, each 10 pages in length, written and illustrated by some of Wales' brightest and best creative talents. From comic industry legends such as Mike Collins, to Indie/Small Press creative studio Monkeys with Machineguns, and new comers to the world of comics from the fields of film and animation, these creators have come to together to create a unique set of stories all linked with a distinctly Welsh theme and flavour.
