It really is quite the fantastic line-up.

It truly is and more to come 👍🏻

I did my 1st Lawless in 2019 and loved it and booked to go the following year and was gutted when the shit hit the fan.
So the wife and I have booked the Hotel for next year 🤞🏻 it goes ahead. Just got to save the pennies now.

Cracking line up.

I'll be there.

In news likely to cause dozens of cancellations, I'll be there as part of the Rok of the Reds posse, originally planned for the 2020 Lawless, deferred to this year, and now (fingers crossed!) actually happening in 2022.

I think Abby's coming as well. Not sure about Jim (Boswell) but there's a decent chance you can get a full house of signatures on your Rok TPBs, devaluing them significantly. :-)

Look forward to that I’ll be in the queue for those hallowed scrawls 😁- any hint of a 3rd volume announcement around that time?

Quoth The Wag: "Only if there's a chance I won't lose money on it."

Don't get me wrong — we'd all love to, but Vol2 launched smack into the start of the pandemic and the complete lack of cons as a sales channel hasn't done the prospects of a third book any favours. :-(

That's a real shame. Is there any prospect of a publisher picking it up and rereleasing it?

Not sure, TBH. I think the rights to the first volume are tangled up with BHP, but I couldn't swear to that.

Frankly, I think 2000AD might have picked it up if the Regened project had been in full swing when John originally pitched it to them, but Regened wasn't yet so much as a gleam in the Mighty One's eye when he passed on it. Not blessed with fortuitous timing, this book. :-(

Ah, but now they have Roy of the Rovers, which could only benefit from having a crossover (Rok of the Rovers?).

I did toy with the idea of asking Rob if he could script in match against the Radford Reds, with Melchester only beating them because star striker Kyle Dixon was on international duties for Scotland. :-)

That would be great!

Perhaps a tv in the background showing Dixon knocking in a last gasp winner against the Faroe Islands?

There is a happy and peaceful world full of joy and forum members living in blissful harmony where this has / will be happening... I dream of living in that world...

I wish Dixon was there last night! That was dire (a win is a win though) Maybe Dixon will turn up soon 👍🏻 😁

Weekend Tickets for me and the Mrs bought 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻- We did 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed it so I’m looking forward to this road trip 😁

ticket acquired (Saturday) - I'll probably wear my Dan Dare t-shirt (as I'm a big fan) and it makes me easier to find/avoid

Me: After nearly two years of no gigs, I have tickets for a weekend festival in May with loads of cool bands!
Also me: Lawless is on this year and I'm totally going!
My wife: Not to both on the same weekend you're not.

DROKKING HELL.

I attended Lawless a couple of years ago…*and booked ticket for the following year , which was cancelled for obvious reasons. Recently booked again, weekend tickets. Looking forward to it!

*I worked on a costume too.. then kind of chickened out of wearing it. In my defence the shoulder pads wouldn’t bend around properly. Thinking of reworking it for this year… but we’ll see.

Have you seen the prices that the Hilton are charging for rooms this year?  :o

Maybe it's because I left it a bit late, but they want almost £500 for 2 nights! The Ibis and Travelodge are offering doubles at about half that rate.

Wow! I was early (well the wife was) but they weren’t that much. Seemingly there’s a music festival in the area that weekend so probably put up all rooms

It was far cheaper in previous years, but if there's a lot on best get something booked before the others go up too!

Bizarrely, Hilton prices have now dropped quite a bit - over £150 cheaper than last time I checked- still not cheap, but I'm going to splash out and treat myself. It's always nice to be able to just roll out of the bar into the lift!

I might now be able to make this on the Sunday - for those who have been before, is it worth it? It sounds like most of the fun is Saturday night in the bar..!

I'm coming on the Sunday - would be nice to put faces to names if any other forum Squaxx are going to be there and would like to say hello / tell me I'm a bellend in person...

I'll be at the Rok of the Reds table for parts of the day, and most likely in the bar for the rest of it… :-)

All in black. Big hat. Bigger boots. I'd call you a REDACTED but that honour is affectionately reserved for Pete Wells. ;-)

I’ll be down from Cal-hab with the good wife for both days.

I was there in 2019 and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to the panel’s

I’ll be visiting that stand Jim with both my copies of RoK if you wouldn’t mind signing them 😁

Of course — it's always a pleasant surprise when anyone wants me to sign anything! If, for some reason, I'm away from the table when you roll up but you spot me elsewhere, it's fine to ask then, as well.

(Side note: folks looking for a full set of Rok sigs might have to wait until Thought Bubble to snag Abby Bulmer… last I heard she'd managed to double-book herself for the Lawless weekend and can't make it.)

Without wishing to drag this off topic anyone who doesn't read The Phoenix should defo check out Abby Buler's Doggo. One of the great unappericated 4 panel gag strips.

Awesome! Look forward to hopefully meeting you guys. I'll be dressed as an aging death metal dude with a hobo beard. Perhaps I'll bring my Rok volumes for signing also..
