Posted one of these a few days ago but as a more detailed version just went up I thought I’d share. Also, I’m due to record a podcast with Pete Wells of the 2000AD covers website tomorrow so will get Iz to jump in for 5 and give a further runthrough of the 2000AD related stuff due to go on.
Should be a good one, but then the Bristol Con always is. Pic below taken from the 2000AD panel at last years event.
This year’s Bristol Comic Expo (at its new venue of the Future Inn) is a pre-sale all-ticket event!! This means that there won’t be any tickets available on the door – so if you want to go. Get your tickets THIS WEEK!! (weekend pass £16, Saturday day pass £10, Sunday day pass £8). Want to have a sneaky peek at the range of panels at this year’s show? Read on….

It’s not all about comics either – there’s also a freelance rap workshop from Dr Elemental; and panels on the art of the gaming industry; bringing Dr Who to the printed page; and a double bill of animation panels (exploring both Bristol’s contribution to the animation industry, and the UK industry as a whole) with a host of top UK industry professionals giving an insight into the animation industry – NOT to be missed by animation students and fans alike!
