For those of you looking for something fun to fill your days now that the Olympics have come to an end (and before the Paralympics kick off on the 29th) look no further! This weekend (18th-19th) the magnificent city of Oxford will once more play host to the annual CAPTION small press comic convention, a two day celebration of all things comic-y.
For the humble price of £5 for a single day pass, or £10 for a weekend pass (that's roughly 1000x cheaper than the worst seat available at the velodrome!) you can feast your eyes on the very best self-published and independent press the UK has to offer. And US!
I will be representing the Etheringtons on two back-to-back comic panels on Sunday 19th.
12:30-13:30 Playing in Someone Else's Sandbox
I'll be joined by comic stars Richy Chandler, David Baillie and Charles Cutting to discuss the good/bad/ugly differences between publishing your own creations and working on licensed characters.
14:00-15:00 The Phoenix: A Gallimaufry of Graphical Goodness
It doesn't get much better than this! Neill Cameron and Daniel Hartwell (Pirates of Pangaea) Adam Murphy (Corpse Talk) and hopefully Patrice Aggs (Blimpville) and myself will be waxing lyrical about the magnificent Phoenix Comic. Should be a corker.
The action kicks off at the East Oxford Community Centre around midday - full directions can be found HERE!
