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!!


In no particular order:

  • 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.

    Man, that’s awesome! I hardly bought anything this time… Partly because I had a leash on my spending but mostly due to not having enough time to browse methinks… Now I wish that I had bought more stuff though. Your suitcase should always be fuller on the way home.

    That’s one fantastic photo of your collection! And to think you almost left all that with me on Sunday XD~

    Sadly, I’ve literally run out of room in my apartment for any more ‘things’ in general. It’s sad! Need to move to a bigger place for more bookshelf space.

    Tell Kate we’re hunting her down for a signature soon. We’re on the prowl!
