Moniaive Comic Festival Weekend 2016

Here’s the details of this year’s Moniaive Comic Festival Weekend (11th – 12th June) – two days of all things related to comic books in Moniaive, a village in the Parish of Glencairn, in Dumfries and Galloway, South-West Scotland.

Some of Britain’s top writers and artists in attendance, including 2000AD’s Alan Grant, John Wagner and Cam Kennedy; former 2000AD editor David Bishop; writer and Planet Jimbot publisher Jim Alexander; writer Ferg Handley; and a number of artists, including Nigel Dobbyn, Frank Quitely and Jim Stewart.

The weekend’s programme offers workshops, drawing comics, stalls, film screenings, a stop-animation film workshop, costume parade, talks, auction, signings, sketches, the chance to design your own local comic character, portfolio reviews, and, of course, plenty of opportunities to meet the guests.
