Artist Graham Bleathman has become the latest luminary from the Anderson universe to confirm their attendance at Supercelebration later this year.

Loved by fans for his amazing cutaway illustrations of Anderson craft and buildings, Graham has been a regular contributor to FAB magazine and special guest at past conventions. At Special Assignment in 2017 he appeared alongside the late Mike Noble to talk about their work illustrating TV21 and the 1990s Fleetway Thunderbirds Comic. If you ask him nicely he may draw you a pen and ink sketch of your favourite Anderson vehicle!

Join us for a Supercelebration

Early bird tickets to Supercelebration start at just £55 per person for one day, or £90 for the whole weekend. In this challenging financial climate, we’ve managed to keep the ticket price the same as our Special Assignment convention in 2017. That’s because we’re a fan club and no one is taking a salary.
