Thanks Bolt, the people of Wimbledon did us proud.  It was a little slow to start with, however by the afternoon the footfall increased as people took advantage of the free entry and comics workshops which were a hit with the kids. Most traders I spoke to did well. Here are some of the people who bought comics from me...



Above: Fellow Dan Dare fan Richard bought copies of Shaman Kane.



Above: The wonderful Sarah Harris also took copies of Gallo, Spectre Show and Shaman Kane off of my hands.



Above: Mark a fellow 2000AD fan and Prog 1 reader picked up all three Shaman Kane books and an original piece of V.C.'s art from the V.C.'s story by myself and Matt Sharp which featured in ZARJAZ #27.
Here is a link to my blog post which features the layouts, pencils and comments from the script writer for the V.C.'s story http://dbroughton.blogspot.co.uk/.../the-vcs-raid-on...



Above: And finally Tay, who was verry happy with her Judge Death artwork and the last copy of Martillo that I have to sell.

A great day thanks to organiser Rik Jackson here is his report on the day https://wimbledoncomicartfestival.wordpress.com/2017/11/13/wimbledons-first-comics-event-is-a-success/

Thanks DrJomster, if it is back next year I'd love to be there.  I think FREE entry comics art festivals are the way to go.  :D

Here, here.

Smaller gigs offering free entry are a great way of increasing the readership.

Need to sort my gigs for next year...
