Yes, it’s true. I have seen it with my own eyes. There is a thing called a “Sun” and the UK is basking within its warm glow. But people of a comic loving nature may need a little more to fully warm those cockles… Well how about a(nother) Comic Convention?
This years Kapow Comic Convention is being held on the 19th & 20th May at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. Last years event was epic and it seems that 2012 is also going to be a memorable occasion, with Warren Ellis, Joe Quesada, Frank Quietly and many many more attending.
Tickets for the event are still available at £35 for the whole weekend or £20 for a single day.
We really enjoyed last year’s Mocca Fest, and did so well that we booked a table for this years event there and then. Of course, there’s always a worry when you do really well at a Convention that it might have been a ‘one off’, and that a return to the same event might not be anywhere near as successful, but we’d decided to just go for it and see what happens.
Do you feel that there are not enough comic events in your life right now? Well, never fear. Just make sure you have a pen ready to write down this important message:
There is so much organised during these 4 days, rather than list it here, click on the link below where you will be blessed with everything you need to know.
I, like many people, draw cat comics. There’s a surprising amount of stories to be told when it comes to cats, yet there is also very familiar ground that needs to be trodden carefully. The very same can be said about how charities promote their messages. Being part of the design team for Cats Protection, this is something that comes up time and time again.

Rock n’ roll and comics makes perfect sense to me – they can both be vibrant, exciting & edgy. They can also both exist harmoniously in Camden which is why the news that the Camden Crawl is incorporating a new Crawlternative Media Expo is so exciting! Our buddies at Alternative Press will be there, I imagine many brilliant artists and writers will be there also. We’ll be there, your Auntie June will be there and David Bowie’s hairdresser might be popping along as well. Do you know there’s only one person missing from this crowd? YOU! So see you there!
Details and interview with Jimi Gherkin of the Alternate Press Fair after the link:
Some days, it’s like the whole world is against you*. It rains. Your colleagues are all walking round with little stormclouds over their heads and, for some inexplicable reason, you lock yourself out of the building not once, but twice. You forget an important post-work event for which you are not, as it turns out, dressed properly. At said event, you introduce Important Person A to Important Person B using the wrong name and job title, then get interrupted as you attempt to make the only valid input you can contribute. Even then, as the day draws to a close, you realise that all the scones are gone and that you are left with gallons of delicious-looking but indigestible whipped cream and a single tiny, virtuous bowl of strawberries (see * again, if you haven’t already).
