Had a great time at the MCM Expo! :) Was lovely to catch up with/meet so many people, and I ended up buying/being given a massive pile of comics and stuff!!
- Rockfall mini-comics 1 + 2 by Paul Fryer. This man is the god of comicking!
- Postcards & Sunny and the Bluebirds by Evelyn Hewett. Outrageously talented for such a young age!
- Squidgirls Artbook, by Ben Templesmith. Incredibly generously given, and gorgeous to boot!
- Dr Who singles, by Al Davison & Tony Lee. Al gets David Tennant’s Doctor bang on!
- Am I Here? & Illusional Beauty by Rebecca Burgess. Such awesome cartooning skills!
- Penelope’s Far-Out-Mantic! by Sarah Burgess. Read it online, it rocks!
- Telling Tales from Sweatdrop. An all-star compilation with a beautiful cover by Faye Yong.
- Be Creative by Sonia Leong. Ingeniously comical manga self-help book!
- Studio Ghibli poster by Rachel Suanders. Her work is just breathtaking!
- DFC Badges, from the DFC Library stand!
- Brainfist & 100 Planets by Daniel Merlin Goodberry. Needs to be read to be believed!
- Legends from IndieManga. Super-talented Indie comics squad!
- Bursting, Telephone & Lonesome Jim by Joseph J. Morgan. If The Walking Man had a bad day, this would be it!
- Sun Fish Moon Fish & Looking for the sun by Morag Lewis. Storyteller extraordinaire!
- The Dark tower, generously donated and signed by the writer, Robin Furth. Just stunning!
- Urban Beasts 2 by Karen Rubins. Utterly weird and awesome!
- Claude Will Fight You Too & Immortal Ewan and the Rod of Rasputin by Claude Trollope-Curson. Unicorn shits Princess! Sold!
I don’t think I’ve ever come back from the Expo with such an awesome haul. It was lovely to browse the self-publishers tables and pick up so many comics because I just loved the look and sound of them! Long live the Comic Villiage, and 100% cudos to Emma Vieceli, Andrew Ruddick & Anna Petterson for making it so awesome.
