The home page for this Con has a 'Who would you like to see?' suggestion box.... it even accepts Buttonman as a suggestion.

I think this clashes with holidays for me so I'm out before I'm in.

Aye which is a shame as I always enjoyed the mad dash on a Saturday then a pretty chilled out Sunday.

As I don't read superhero comics they are yet to announce anyone I know so they better have a bar this year!

*bump* ['cos a poster in a record shop reminded me today...!]

Right now I doubt an advance ticket is even necessary. Who's going?

I'm in town for a gig the night before, so staying over but its looking like the Jocks can't organise a pish up...

I've got a ticket but the whole thing looks a bit of a damp squid.
Any one know if there is any 2000ad artist/writers going?

Where's CF when we need him  :o

Looking forward to this, no cons for me since 2016  :o

Couple of good panels and Christian Ward & Kathryn Briggs in attendance. Plus some droids of course... Don’t do monthlies or physical comics these days but I’ll make some exceptions for this.

Taps Aff, etc....  :thumbsup:

Just back from this and really enjoyed meeting Tom, Ian John and Dan Cornwell getting sketches from the Tom and Dan and an original Hammerstein & Rowjaws (coloured) piece from Ian.

The whole con was nice but not too small or too busy where you can still walk round without knocking into people with your rucksack.

BHP comics either hosts or sponsors this so a lot of their stable there to check out. There was a lot of cosplayers for the size of con. Always amazed at the efforts people go to for their heroes. I was even arrested by Dredd in the Buchanan Street Gallery's for loitering  :D

Depending on the guests I would go again as its relativity close to get too from East lothian.

Tom recommended going to the Bristol con for whatever reincarnation this evolves into from Lawgiver so I'll have to save ma pennies.

I ended up missing this as a long lie and great breakfast at Citizen M, seemed a better option, and company  :-X

Passed the entrance on the way to Queen St and it seemed packed with young female cosplayers in various states of undress, another sign its not for me as I never recognised one character  :-\

The layout and tables seemed similar to last year so nothing different enough to catch my eye... sigh maybe next year?

I was at it and the number of VERY young girls dressed as the Suicide Squad version of Harley Quinn was disturbing.
