Folk to watch out for at the Bristol Comic Expo

(with thanks to Bryan Talbot, who can’t be there due to deadlines – but Watch the Grandville trailer!): Here’s a list of just some of the comics creators at the Bristol Comic Expo this weekend to look out for if you’re going…

Running from 22-23 May at two venues in Bristol (the Ramada and the Mercure), this year’s Expo includes Chris Claremont, Pat Mills, Alan Davis, Mike Carey, Charles Adlard, David Hine, Shaky Kane, Phil Winslade, Ian Churchill, Jock, Mark Buckingham, John Higgins, Doug Braithewaite, Paul Grist, Emma Vieceli, Lee O’Connor, Ian Edginton, Andy Diggle, Sean Phillips, Clint Langley, Steve Yeowell, Paul Cornell, John McCrea, Ian Culbard, Kev Hopgood, Kieron Gillen, Simon Bisley, Mike Ploog, Al Ewing, Garen Ewing, Steve Pugh, Rian Hughes, Gary Erskine, David Roach, Greg Staples, Lew Stringer, Ilya and many more.

The bad news is, the event is sold out, and no news if there will be tickets on the door.

The next major comics event in the UK is the MCM Expo in London at the end of this month. See our events page for information, or scroll down the listing on the right had side of this page
