I'll come! (And then bog off after three pints as I don't get out any more and feel really ropey)

Is this event good? I remember speaking to some of the BHP people at an Edinburgh Comic Art fest a few years ago and they seemed like a decent bunch. I'm tempted to head down if I'm around in June.

It can be a bit hit or miss TBH, but better that anything else on the go in Scotland now...

Bring back HiEx! I'm looking at you Rich!

Yeah, the Edinburgh Comic Con at the ECC is now an official victim of the pandemic, leaving the Glasgow Comic Con the last Scottish con that's actually about comics, AFAIK. (Might still be something in Dundee, it's a bit 'local' feeling?)

The 124 Bus runs pretty late if you don’t mind going through the Pans late at night 😳

Top Pans, so it's no so bad.

Passing the “Dasher” could always be eventful (if it’s still there not been passed there since the pandemic)

But you’re right the journey time on the bus will be waaay too long after a night out😳

Back when I lived in Edinburgh, I went to see the band Preston Pfanz & The Seaton Sands a few times, and I always got a chuckle out of their name. It was basically the same guys as Les Bof! (Edinburgh's best French garage band), but with a different singer.

Anyway. Sorry for the digression.

So I'll be the first to withdraw from this flustercluck!

Looking at the train timetables and allowing for random cancellations, I would be spending most of my day either getting there, watching the clock and getting back, so its a no from me again. One day!


And no, I won't make Perth in August either as that day is mt partners BD.

I didn’t see a peep about it on social media this weekend.

The move from a big prestige venue in the city centre to a sports centre a few miles from the centre didn’t inspire confidence that this was an event on a successful rebound.

Wouldn’t you be better plugging this on the thread about the signing tour, rather than one about a weeks-old comic con that no-one here actually went to?
