Big group from Belfast coming over. The way things are going now we'll be coming from another country ;) We've booked a table and will be launching Issue Five of Sector 13 (Belfasts 2000AD Fanzine). The craic will be lethal. Z

issue 5 already? Bloomin' ada.

I'll have a table this year (my first at a Lawgiver/Lawless) with copies of Zarjaz, Dogbreath as well as the latest FutureQuake & Something Wicked too.

I've also been invited to reprise my role in creating the convention programme too.

Should be a grand day out.

Absolutely worth considering, Mardroid - and attending! It's a great event - lot's of drinking, lots of laughs, lots of social interaction with the guests, artwork and merchandise to buy, costumers and props for photo opportunities. The weekend just goes too quickly and I usually feel the post-con blues when going home, but I'd be going home with signed artwork, happy memories and new friends made. I can't wait for May to come around!

I've added some photos from last year's Lawgiver - they're not the best photos but they'll hopefully whet your appetite...! ;)




Thanks Andy! Looks like a riot (in a good way).

Indeed - I can't remember the chap's name but he always does amazingly inventive cosplay - it's not just the batshit-crazy ideas, it' the attention to detail, down to the colour of the jacket and the tablecloth - it was a fully working glove puppet too. He did Hewligan's Haircut for the 40th!

You had the first three last year, didn't you?  Hope you bring copies of issue four as well (yes, I know it's just been released, but it's a lot easier to just buy them from the stall than do all the internet order / postage and packaging / etc).

Neither did I till Lawgiver - I told him how cool it was and we chatted about other imaginative cosplayers, and when I mentioned Hewligan, he said, "yeah, that was me" - photo evidence here: https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=43731.msg945723#msg945723
Iz McAuliffe wanted to claim the synthetti puppet that night when he said he didn't want to keep it - wonder if she ever managed to get it back on the train?  :lol:

Cool (I read the first three on the journey home from last year's LG).

Booked! Not the first comic convention I’ve been to, but the others were relatively local.

Technically it’s not the first 2000ad specific one I’ve been to either as I did go to the 2000ad anniversary event a couple of years back, but I didn’t see much of the main event itself. Money was tighter back then, but I had a free pass to the Strontium Dog fanfilm as I had a couple small roles In it. They were wrapping up the main event by that point. (I guess I could have come earlier but I didn’t want to take liberties by gatecrashing the main thing.)

Stayed for the follow up film and drinks in the bar later though. It was nice, but it will be good to experience a real Dredd/2000ad convention!

I’d best book a hotel next, I guess!
