    Chances are, if you're local to North East England and like comics you know about this already, but...

    The Canny Comic Con opens its doors at 10:00am today at Newcastle Central Library... and it's Free.

    There are 40 guests including Bryan Talbot, Doug Braithwaite, Al Ewing, Gary Erskine and the X-Club's artist Paul Davidson.

    There are also a ton of panels and comic workshops for kids.

    Any of the WC members going?

    @ Ian Mayor: I will give that the once over in due course.Chuffed that it went ok and good on you for giving Newcastle the support it needs.

    I remember when the city didn't even have one comic store so it just shows how far things have improved in the field.Folk have got it lucky in London so anyone who helps this sometime fragile media gets the thumbs up from me.

    I was lucky that a newsagent in South Shields was getting in Swamp Thing in the mid eighties when i was exiled there and 2000AD was the only real staple diet. Warrior for a short while too.

    Northlanders...berzerkers at heart and mental on the battlefield.Pissed on mead on Holy Island,cut off by the tide and smashing everything in site.That was me a few hundred years ago.I fooking wish...

    Me and me mate,like,used to make our own home-brew.From a kit purchased in North Shields for brown ale.By the time we had our wicked way it was some potent,twisted,murky stuff.I believe we put 3 or 4 times the amount of sugar in it because we were mad,young and xmas was a time to spazz-out.I had a massive air-force coat with loads of inside pockets and i used to fill it with the viscous mind-rotter to smuggle into night-clubs like it was so much contraband.I gave a few to some hardcore piss-head mates and they are probably still missing-in-action.

    We named this vile concoction KRAKATOA as bottles of it kept exploding in me mate's mother's garage.

    Geordies,booze,xmas,cold weather,pavement pizzas,the dreaded Whitemarket area of the Toon,climbing up high buildings and shouting "Look at me,ya fookaz,i'm Batman,like",waking up next to a student and groaning "Ah,shite man..i've done it again",guilt,hair-of-the dog,Judge Dredd and Slaine t-shirts,regal king size cigarettes and going into work with a hangover only the devil could dream of.

    My illustrious youth...
