    Umm.. yeah, FA Vol 2 will be available from one of the retailers there, although I'm not certain of the details, and I won't be selling them personally (I don't have a table this year) I think I'll be doing a specific FreakAngels signing at some point at said retailers though. I'll update with details once more is known!

    Thanks for answering, am looking forward to it!

    Edit: Have now purchased Freakangels Volume 1 for signing :o) It cost £14.99 from Forbidden Planet which seems like a bit of a rip off considering the $ price but nevermind. How much will Vol 2 be on sale for?

    Hopefully the lovely 'They Walk Among Us' will have lots of shiny copies of Freakangels one and two in stock, along with other Ellis goodies...and some non-Ellis goodies too for that matter. It's this specific comic retailer's first Expo, so let's all make them welcome by throwing gold their way!

    UrbanAngel, I paid over £20 for my hardback....and Paul was stood right there with me. Meanie XD
    *hugs paul* I'm joking, I'm joking!

    "I think we need special 'Whitechapel' greetings so that they know we frequent this place." - I hate to think......

    I never even got comps.

    My copy was just a paperback, hence the price difference. Hopefully you guys will get a bigger cut from the sales at Expo like bands do when they sell their CDs at their own gigs. Cutting out the middle man as it were.

    I have something on during most of the day, alas (and also an unfortunate twitchy eye/reflexive stabby stabby reaction when faced with Huge Crowds of Slavering Fen - thanks sci-fi conventions!) but I would def. be up for some form of Whitechapel drinks if people were going to be congregating afterwards.

    You own most of William's organs, don't you? You'd think he'd naturally think comp... /mythology joke

    @UrbanAngel
    From Paul's comments:

    Umm.. yeah, FA Vol 2 will be available from one of the retailers there, although I'm not certain of the details, and I won't be selling them personally (I don't have a table this year)


    Still got a middleman.

    I was wondering, is there any advised etiquette for this sort of thing? I don't usually (and by usually I mean ever) go around 'glomping' people so I should be okay on that front- but are there any common subtleties I should know about? Also, is there a definitive layout of the tables available at any point?
    I'm starting to think I might not have time to sort out a KK costume. I was planning on making it with as little money as possible but time might be an issue now. I have an art exam coming up as well as another exam the day before the expo. We shall see.

    @UrbanAngel- got mine from Amazon for about £13.50, not always in stock though which can be an issue with them.

    wow, I'm suddenly tipsy on gin. It caught me by surprise.

    I'm sure young Duffield won't mind the occasional glomping.

    Hey Steaming Badger - I'm working on a KK costume as we speak! you should do it :o) It is taking a fair bit of time though as starting from scratch on the skirt and I don't have a sewing machine. Just bought a military style shirt from Camden markets for KK's jacket which I need to modify too.

    London seems a bit far to go just to throw cupcakes at Warren and pull his beard a little. I will have to wait until he comes back to Norway.

    In 2019.

    I hope you all have fun at your fabulous geeky convention!
  8.  (5615.14)
    Oh, I like to think I'll be back in Norway before then.
  9.  (5615.15)
    I might swing by to say hello if I don't forget/have the time.

    Some of you should bring Ellis Something-to-Drink. I highly suspect he's going to need it. :)

    i'm fairly sure if i had the money to buy whiskey that warren ellis would like, i'd be selfish and drink it myself

    sorry mr. ellis.

    Flights booked. departing on the friday, half 6.

    Still to do: buy a ticket for the expo itself, figure out how im traversing the three miles between my uncles and the venue without a car.
