All set for the festival…

Lancaster’s Ashton Memorial will be filled with comics fans tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to the event.

Local artist Ant Mercer has done a top job of PRing the thing, so I hope all his hard work pays off in terms of punters. That said, there’s enough small press people coming to more than make it a great day, we’ve got the final issue of Eagle Flies Again on sale and I’m sure I’ll have chance to read the latest Spaceship Away, the spooky Misty Comic tribute I got in the post earlier this week, and catch up with some friends. Fab!
