Let’s Do the Timewarp…

Now it can be told… Attendees at the UK indie comic press event Caption 2007: Dreams & Nightmares were given a prophetic dream of the theme for Caption 2008. And the dream came true. Caption 2008 is Caption Timewarp.

It will be taking place again at the East Oxford Community Centre on 9th – 10th August, in the year that celebrates Deadline‘s 20th anniversary, Escape‘s 25th anniversary, Luther Arkwright’s 30th anniversary and The Beano‘s 80th…

Caption are now accepting illustrations and comic strips on the Timewarp theme for inclusion in the convention programme, exhibition, and auction. Contact Jay Eales for more info at: jay.eales AT googlemail.com.
