    National Library of Scotland is running a good exhibition at present on comics and graphic novels called 'Local Heroes: The Art of the Graphic Novel' and they have the archive to do it. They've got a copy of every thing published in the UK and Ireland from when we still burnt witches. That's a fuck of a lot of comics.

    I went to the opening (disclaimer: I've got a friend who works there), drank the free wine, enjoyed poetry (doesn't happen often), listened to Alan Grant's excellent opening speech, drank more wine and then had a think.

    Not sure what I thought about because I drank much free wine but I was damn impressed. Seems to fit well with Warren Ellis's mission, what ever that mission is. Also Marvel and D.C. were assholes so none of their stuff is there. Cunts. Still made it more local.

    Going to see Gary Erskine on 6th May and maybe Frank Quitely on the 29th April.
