Bristol Comics and Small Press Expo Roundup


We had a great time at the con, the reaction to all our comics was very encouraging and we sold enough to make it worth doing again. Thanks to all who bought books from our table!

Was well good to meet you mate, thanks a lot for the link!

Was good to meet you too. Hopefully see you at some other events this/next year. Think I'll be going to Leeds Thought Bubbble next.
