London MCM Expo

I'll be at London MCM Expo from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st October, so come say hi if you see me wandering around, snapping away! I'll be the one in the blue and silver 'futuristic' outfit. Haha. Ha.

Maybe instead of a "Free Hugs!" sign I should carry a "Free Photos!" sign... I just want to fit in ;_;

The Spider Moon book launch

My first book launch! So much fun!

I took myself along as the unofficial photographer (as I do), enjoyed a glass of wine kindly provided by the staff at Blackwells Bookshop, and generally made a nuisance of myself. Oh wait no, that was Kate.

The launch was for Kate Brown's The Spider Moon, one of the strips that ran in The DFC. I'd like to sound really clever and deep and drop some names, but at the end of the day Kate and the other DFC artists drew amazing comics, and now they're in hardback. Remember your old annuals? Yeah, it's like that, but cooler.

There was a raffle (in a hat!) where a very lucky gentleman and his family got to choose one of Kate's huuuuuge poster prints, and a charity auction for Mind, where two wonderful ladies from Story Museum came away with prints and original line work.

There was also a Philip Pullman, but sadly I didn't manage to get a photo of him, not even a sneaky one :( Must try harder!

It was really great to see all these people, of all age groups, coming together to support comics. Awesome! I grew up with Beano and Dandy, Whizzer and Chips, Muppet Babies, all the best ones (Marvel? What?), and I really miss all that. I took my niece and nephew to buy some recently and all they had were these 'comics' with entire pages taken up by one puzzle, or adverts, and cheap tat stuck to the front to entice the child with, not to mention the fact they cost anywhere up to £5. £5!!! Let's bring comics back, proper comics, ones that make children laugh out loud, ones that make them want to draw. If The DFC makes a comeback, I hope to see it in newsagents, knocking the other publications off the shelf!

(That wasn't deep, was it? I don't do deep.)

COMIX RULE!
