UK Web & Mini Comics Thing 2009 report
Here are the obligatory table shots from the thing last Saturday. The first one shows my 'Cardboard Wonder' table decoration which also came with me to Leeds. Sadly it broke after this Thing and I had to throw it away. The real shame is that it was only two days away from retirement....
I had a good time at the thing, I was on table 18 next to Francesca Cassavetti, Sally Anne Hickman and Richy K Chandler. The problem was that I had poor sales and only sold 8 comics. Don't know why. I didn't sell a single comic till 1pm by which time I was getting somewhat desperate. I bought some good comics which I'll mention here later, I would have bought more, but I was planning to spend my earnings on them and I didn't make any. A lot of people said how nice 'Bog Wizards 2' was with it's board game, but no one bought one.
Afterwards I went to Schmurgencon in a pub down the road for a few pints of Stella and then got drunk with my brother, and went for a nice curry. I also popped by the Post Thing Thing and had a few beers there and saw a few people.
It was a very good weekend except for the disappointing sales.
