But they failed to secure the real star. Me.
No, no. I never get invited to these places cus I am too rad for d'Yoot!
However, Mr Paul Ashley Brown will be there with the last few copies of Defective Comics (and hoping to avoid DC lawyers!) and the very rare Donald Hamilton Mind Your Manners comic -yes, I bought copies because rarity makes for investment but more than that Peter "Pampered" Lally and "Old Slow Hand" produced two of the best and funniest comics with these. Dimitri ("Mountain Goat God") Pieri will also be selling his goods there. The trio have so far not announced any major Hollywood movie deals...
Not that long to go til this event and there are two names that stand out: Bristol's own Paul Ashley Brown and Dimitri Pieri (the singing rebel once known as Jimmy Gherkin).
If Mr Brown has any stock left (I am depleting what stock he has already because I invest wisely in comics) check his table out. Also, of course, Dimitri.
Until last week I had no idea this event was even on -but who tells old men stuff, right? So you can guess I won't be there. You know, this is why I'm trying to organise an event because the Small Press has taken and taken over the years but an invite to an event?
Now, now, must not get bitter.
But check it out -free entry. Are you going to argue about free entry to an event???
