Commando and British Comics Swap Meet 8 - 26th March 2022 - Glasgow

Focused entirely on British comics, this is not a Comic-Con – so no no lycra-clad superheroes, just comics/annuals and comic-readers, “and, if we are lucky, an odd artist or writer may pop in,” says organiser Stephen Hume, who’s also one of the administrators of the Commando and British Weekly Comics – Collectors, Buy, Sell and Swaps Page on Facebook. “You never know…”

If you would like a table to buy, sell or swap from for the day, it costs just £10.00 – contact Stephen via the Facebook Group. All proceeds will go to 29th Glasgow Scout Group.

The venue is 15 minute train ride from Glasgow Central to Pollokshaws East, with a five minute walk to the venue, five minutes drive from Junction 2 of M77 motorway with ample on street parking. There will be brews ‘n’ butties, a charity raffle.
