Operation: Nick Roche to attend TFNation 2017
The engineers have finished reinforcing the foundations, the barriers are erected, and crowd control is in place... so now we can safely announce the return to TFNation 2017 of Nick Roche!
We are honoured that he has elected to grace us with his presence, so precious is his time these days! The last few years have seen him tackling a wide range of work and demand is ever-growing, providing covers for ROBOTECH, JUDGE DREDD and DEADPOOL VS PUNISHER, as well as interior artwork for Marvel’s DEATH'S HEAD & NEW WARRIORS, and co-creating the horror comedy MONSTER MOTORS with 'Minions' screenwriter Brian Lynch….and on top of all this he also collaborated with Brit rockers The Darkness to not only provide a cover for their album LAST OF OUR KIND, but an entire music video for hit single BARBARIAN. What’s more, he's busy working on his own creator-owned project… we hope to hear more about that over the weekend!
And then there's this little thing called Transformers.
A fan since the Marvel UK days and a member of the long-running TransMasters UK creative community (which also brought us the talents of James Roberts and Jack Lawrence), Nick first worked on IDW’s Spotlight series, followed by Devastation, Maximum Dinobots and a notable issue of All Hail Megatron. Following numerous covers for various series, Nick stunned the Transformers community with critically acclaimed 2010 mini-series LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS, which broke hearts, shattered trousers and whose influence has been felt in Transformers ever since.
His continuing involvement has seen him provide alternate covers for almost every issue of MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE and LOST LIGHT to date, as well as a return to writing with the notably strong SPOTLIGHT: MEGATRON and, most recently, to once again put the Autobot's premier black ops team through the wringer with SINS OF THE WRECKERS.
Nick will be signing autographs and selling artwork, somewhere in the middle of the art-fan equivalent of a moshpit, at TFNation 2017 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel - we look forward to seeing you there!
