Leeds Alternative Comics Fair 5


Good Morning!

The Leeds Alternative Comics Fair returns once more on the 8th December, attached are the posters for the event by Steve Tillotson (fighting snowmen) and Hugh Raine (giggling infant) and below is our press release for the event. We’d be very grateful if you’d help us spread the word:

“The Leeds Alternative Comics Fair returns for its 5th outing on Saturday 8th December, and this time it’s got a distinctly seasonal theme. We’re encouraging everyone to ditch the Christmas shopping and discover a haven of creativity and inspiration from some of the finest artists in the North (and beyond), and there will be plenty of unique and unusual comics, art and crafts that will make great gifts. Once again, it’ll take place at A Nation of Shopkeepers, a spacious bar that has proved to be the ideal venue with its great atmosphere, interesting food menu and well-stocked bar, and as usual we’ll be keeping it intimate in scale so that attendees can have a good look at everything on offer, and get to chat with the creators about their wares.

Exhibitors this time include ‘friends of LACF’ Gareth Brookes, James ‘Couk’ Downing, Kristyna Baczynski, Adam Cadwell, Andy ‘Hexjibber’ Sykes, plus organisers Steve Tillotson and Hugh Raine, and Sean Azzopardi will be exhibiting for the first time, along with more new faces to be announced soon.

It’s on from 12 noon until 5pm and as usual the event is completely free to enter, so come along, have a browse, a chat, a drink and a fish finger sarnie, and pick up some unique presents for your friends and family (and don’t forget to treat yourself of course!).”

Many Thanks

Steve & Hugh
