Bits and Bobs

Greetings! I didn't make yesterday's mart. England was baking and I decided to take the missus and nipper to the country. Much better than hanging around in an unventilated hall with a bunch of old stinkers. I can only imagine the pong in The Royal National. Anyone who attended and survived is welcome to report back!

I also missed the Bristol Comic Convention. I almost went to this, but by the time I found out about it, it had sold out. No matter, Friend of LLC, Mr John "Eyemelt" Bishop was in attendance and has promised to provide a trip report. It'll be up in the next few days. Huzzah!

Talking of friends of this humble bog, everyone should check out Mike Leader's latest bit on his site. It's all about the cracking comic murals at Southwark Library. Great stuff, puts me in mind of THESE so it does.

Tomorrow is a special day at GOSH! Dan Clowes and Chris Ware will be in the store signing books. I love a bit of the old Clowes, me. Sadly I'll have the nipper, so I'm highly doubtful. Gutted. For those who can attend, details are HERE

Also looks unlikely I'll make it, being stuck in work. Blast it.

Thanks for the link, Dom!

I'm working tomorrow, so even though I'm a stone's throw from Gosh, I'll have to miss out on the alt-comix double team. Unfortunate!
