Steve Dillon Sketchbook, Debuted At NYCC, Will Be At MCM London Comic Con Too

A year ago, just after New York Comic Con, on the 22nd October, Steve Dillon passed away in New York from a burst appendix. This year 2000AD's marketing man Mike Molcher decided to put together a charity sketchbook to celebrate the man and his life as comic book artist, editor, designer and publisher.


The book debuted at New York Comic Con last week but will be making its UK debut at MCM London Comic Con later this month.

Here's the cover by Bill Sienkiewicz and back cover by Rafael Albuquerque.

This is a personal project supported by 2000 AD, with the blessing of Steve's family, and help from Tim Pilcher and John Hendrick.



The book has an introduction by Garth Ennis, costs £10 and all proceeds from the sale of this special sketchbook will go directly to The Hero Initiative, which supports comic book creators in need.

With each purchase of the sketchbook, fans will also receive special prints of John Constantine from Hellblazer by Sean Phillips and Jeff Lemire and one of Steve's co-creations Dogwelder by Russ Braun.

Limited to 2,000 copies, the Steve Dillon Memorial Charity Sketchbook will now only be available at MCM London Comic Con from the Rebellion booth, any remaining copies will then be available from 2000 AD's webshop at
