Cycling Through Extinction Rebellion (And Other) Protests On Black Friday in London

#NotComics. Cycling into London, It really is my thing now. And even when the police close off roads for protests, they let the bicycles through.

Orbital Comics of London to Stop Selling New Weekly Comics

Orbital Comics has, over the last twenty years, become my comic store of choice in central London.

Tomorrow, Bleeding Cool hopes to report live from the Extinction Rebellion protests happening in London again. I did my bit by not flying to New York Comic Con.

This is one of those movie spinoff things that I wasn’t expecting. Because as a family, we love to take the kids to London’s South Bank. We do a thing, play on the wooden slats playground, walk up the South Bank, maybe pop into the Royal Festival Hall to see what’s going on, then wander […]
