Swapmeet 5 - Watford, tomorrow

Still wondering whether to go along to Swapmeet #5 in Watford tomorrow? Let me see if I can tempt you with these ten good reasons...

1). Details are as are free! Adults just £1!

2). Special guests will include...The Mighty One himself Steve Macmanus - he'll be taking orders for his new book so be sure to talk to him about that...also Commando / 2000AD / new Eagle stalwart writer 

3). Commando (and plenty more besides) writer Alan Hebden will be there, he'll be selling and signing some of his books (El Mestizo for instance)…also 

4). Mike '2000AD / new Eagle / Tornado / loads of other comics' Dorey will be selling his art there 

5). Comics writer James Nicholas (see interview here) will be there - he wrote for most of IPC's adventure comics in the '80s and '90s, including Johnny Red and Charley's War.

6). Here's some of the fine merchandise / tat you could be taking home with you...  

7). There'll be a (small) display of original comic art by comics legends like Frank Hampson, Don Harley, Keith Watson plus more recent artists like John Ridgway, David Pugh & John Stokes.

8). 14 tables from a dozen sellers - these aren't sellers that you see at the London comic mart, these are fans selling directly to you, this is tat / highly collectable merchandise that is fresh to the market!

9). No Funko Pop's on sale.

10). It's all vintage British comics all the way - no American comics

See you there? I'll be the guy in the Dan Dare t-shirt so why not come and say hi.
