Romero illustration at London Comic-Con

This news from the estate of Peter O'Donnell:

The London Comic Con takes place at the end of next week. The Anthony Nolan cancer charity has taken a stall at Comic Con, and are going to run an illustration competition for budding comic artists. The aim is to get youngsters to sign up to the stem cell register as potential donors - a worthy cause.
We commissioned Romero to create the image of a new superhero-type character and to do a picture of him with Modesty. We are donating a limited edition print of the picture as the prize.
We only found out about this a couple of weeks ago so it has been a bit of a rush to get everything in place. Romero was brilliant - we went from description to proof to final in three days.
We think Anthony Nolan are planning to display the framed print on their stall. The draft handouts and stall wording that they sent us mention Modesty.
Any Modesty fans going to the London Comic Con might be interested to see it.

Comic Con runs from Oct 28-30, 2016 at the London Royal Victoria dock
