Ooh, John and Carlos together! I've never really had a chance to chat to Carlos - his queue at the 40th was immense and I only managed to burble drunkenly at him briefly in the bar afterwards

Damn that is a decent line up and not too far away and 'free' is a good price... hmmm maybe I can use this as a way to dry run the kids at a comic con.

Colin- I had a talk with the organiser of this gig a few weeks back and if half of his enthusiasm makes it into the gig then it should be a corker. Like Thought Bubble when it was freshly minted.

It has the added bonus of having a few Phoenix creators there which will be a big plus for the kids, who every Friday morning excited ask me 'is The Phoenix coming today?'

Reckon they would be chuffed to meet The Etherington Brothers. I hope to be able to swing this one.

I'm tempted, great line-up and I've neglected the cons recently. Dunno about 'free!' if you're travelling, but whatever :-) Never had a sketch from that Wagner artist guy  :o

The way the organiser sees it is if it's Free to get it people will spend more buys comics and having sketches do. What a refreshing change!

Everything wise Bhuna has said is true!

Plus for those Squaxx dek Thargo interested, the organisers are running a special panel/talk at the end of the day (starts around 4.30pm I think), that has every 2000ad creator in attendance on the day... I'll leave you to count 'em all ;) The organisers have said that's limited entry though, around 70/75 spaces & it is £5 for entry. Considering it's a free show, that's a bargain I think. Personally really looking forward to it!
