While only a very short trip north gets you to SWALC VIII, a micro-arts festival in a pub, with David Lloyd as star guest, possibly aware of its double booking, describing itself as “No boring panels, talks or formal signing sessions, just hang out and chat with some of the most creative minds in the country during a pleasant afternoon drink-up.”And on Sunday… read whatever I bought on Saturday. I expect to buy lots. So… will I see you there?

UPDATE: Also, at Gosh Comics in London… Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill signing Marshal Law!
