: 2000AD Droids signing at GOSH on Free Comic Book Day
: COMMANDO FORCES 17 April, 2011, 08:00:23 PM
Seeing as there are a few London based fans on here, then why not pop along to this at GOSH, on Saturday 7th May, 13:00-14:30.
Dan Abnett, Al Ewing & Robbie Morrison will be there and it looks like they will have the free 2000AD's as well.

Here's the link (http://goshlondon.blogspot.com/2011/04/2000ad-signing-for-free-comic-book-day.html) for all the info  :D

Argh! Our wedding anniversary! There is little or no chance she'd go for the chance to stand in a queue and talk to middleaged men in celebration, im afraid. Bugger, and in a very real sence, bum.

This, this is what Women's Lib has brought about.  Are you happy now, Virginia Woolf?  Are you?  (Probably not).

Very interesting, thats alot of talent in the basement at Gosh, the iron circular staircase will be groaning under the weight of 2000ad fans! May pop along though Free Comic Day has always been a bit of a let down in the past (at least at Comicana, sorry Alex!!)

Walked past Gosh! comics late last night and saw sticker in the window for this. Just remembered. It finishes in 35 minutes. Can I make it in time? Doubt it. Damn and double damn.

Well I decided to dash for it on Saturday and head for Gosh! for the 2000AD signing on free comic book day. I figured that even if I missed the event (as was likely) I could pick up a rug I ordered the other day from a shop nearby – and get some free comics of course from Gosh!

Usual spanner in the works was the 'come when I feel like it' north London bus which wiped out for sure any slim chance of getting there in time.

So when I got to Gosh! the event had finished and Al Ewing was at the till buying some comics. When he paid up I said hello and introduced myself. I asked some very probing questions such as "when is the next Zombo series" and "any more Dredds soon?" Very nice chap that he is, he signed my free 2000AD preview comic and even did a hot dang doodle for me.

The 2000AD graphic novel droid was there and I said a quick hello to him.

I also picked up a couple of issues of DC's Wednesday Comics. I did say to the guy at the till that it's a crime that they are being given away for free. (Not sure how popular they were but I think they are excellent.)

Not comfortable to go to Gosh! just for free stuff I bought the Walking Dead graphic novel 2 as the free comics cost Gosh!

So a quick but worthwhile excursion.
