    Hi,
    So who's going?

    also a few years ago i spoke to Paul and asked him about getting a poster version of this: http://www.freakangels.com/comics/DUFFIELDBROWNEX.jpg

    just wondered if this had come about?

    hope to see some of you there!

    Jim

    Good chance of it this year, need to hit a few friends up and see if they fancy getting some advance tickets. Last time I went I was queuing for a looooong time.

    Apparently Warren is there. Which might well be news to him...

    maybe Emma twisted his arm again :)
    should be a laugh though, last year it was a seriously long queue. I've found turning up at about 11.30 i can walk straight in.
    the queue spread the length of the conference centre the in to a side hall where they started winding up and down until you got to the enterence.

    nothing like a good 2+ hour queuing session! lol

    There's a small chance I'll be there helping Hayena Studios on their stand. Otherwise I'll have to give it a miss as I can't really spare the cash. Meh. Pity.

    That weekend has just freed up for me, I could probably come along if there are many people going.
    I'd feel all alone if I was there on my own... obviously :)

    Looks like I'll be back in London next week for a fortnight, and I've blocked out that weekend for it.

    Hot on the heels of trips to Paris, Bruge and seeing Much ADoctor Who About Nothing w/ Tennant & Tate.

    Every year there's something that prevents me from going. Bah.

    I'm going. Taking 3 girls who are desperately into Anime/Manga. The oldest is 14, so I think I'll try to see Warren and then spend the rest of the time trooping around with them. This is my first time though, so very excited:-)

    I'm there. But purely in a Press capacity this year, recording the podcast for Sidekickcast.

    Managed to talk one friend into coming, so bought the tickets and I'll be there.

    Me and Kate Brown will be sharing a table together there too :)
    Regarding the poster, I think it was printed as a limited run convention poster, but since Avatar won't be there, there won't be any available. They might be available online though, if you look in Avatar's store?

    I'll be there at the Murky Depths tables in the Comic Village. Come and say hello and have a browse - no obligation to buy. Our last visit was in 2009. We're hoping this one will be more successful for us . . .

    Book. Advance. Tickets.

    Seriously it is well worth it. Also, consider a mortgage if you want to park your car at the Excel itself.

    ...and if you want a hotel near the convention, book a year in advance. Also seriously. I almost didn't get a room this year, and I'm an exhibitor!

    I’ll be there selling issues of London Horror Comic. It’s my first three-day event, so wondering what state I’ll be in at the end. Pop over and say hello.

    I'll be there, as usual. Probably in my black & red kimono / yukata as ever, possibly with a overexcited 6 year old dressed as either a stormtrooper, a red power ranger, or spiderman. Maybe with a friend who is not 6, but may also be a little overexcited also. Have some non signed freakangels to bring ;)

    Setting out for London shortly, and it appears the be the first time I've ever been to the MCM with all the trains running normally...
