Sheffield Zine Fest Report

Sheffield Zine Fest was good again this year, I really enjoyed it. It had moved to a new venue, the Hubs, where the student union things are. It was a nice big space and still very near to the train station. It was a little quieter than other years, maybe because it was the bank holiday weekend with a lot of other stuff going on, but the people who came were very interested and bought lots of my comics. In the end I broke even on the day, with travel and table costs, so I'm always happy to do that. Thanks everyone who looked at my stuff or bought anything and thanks to the organisers for another very well run event!

It was great to catch up with Simon Moreton and Nick Soucek who had booked tables. I did lots of swaps and bought some zines too, here they are below...

I got Simon Moreton's 'Minor Leagues #1' which is Simon's new zines / comic project, Nick Soucek's 'The Writing on My Shoes' which I have read now and is very good, 'The Downfall' by Brunez, 'Sex with Animals' by Jacob Louis Beaney, 'Adventures in Menstrating #7' by Chella Quint, 'About a Girl #1' by Sam Duffy and 'You are Not the Worst' by Doug Jensen. I'm going to read the rest of them soon once I recover from the weekend. I had markets on Sunday and Monday after the zine fest so I'm knackered now.

Sheffield Zine Fest on Saturday

I'll be at Sheffield Zine Fest on Saturday. I'll have the three issues of 'Flying Sausage Academy', 'It's a Mans Life in the Ice Cream Business', 'On The Banks of the Mighty Croal', 'Corporation Pop', 'RhiZome', 'Slaves of the Megapode' and lots of other comics and zines for sale. It sounds like it'll be a really good one, there are loads of stalls this year. Please come along and say hello if you are near Sheffield.
