Nottingham Comic Con, 2015

On Saturday 24th October Matt and I we're delighted to attend Nottingham Comic Con for the first time as guests!

A huge thank you to Kev Brett who invited us along and to the organisers who put on an excellent spred, the hall was a delight to walk around!
Making the delightful atmosphere were the people of Nottingham, who it really seems like their rodents. I certainly geeked out a little bit with a few fellow rat owners, and a lady who had a pygmy hedgehog! Massive thanks to anyone who stopped by to chat and buy a book!

Whilst wondering around I caught up with a few old friends, including Clockwork Watch's Corey Brotherson and Yomi Ayeni who had brought along with them someone I did not expect to see!

Byron the bear! Based on a character from Corey's Magic of Myths series, Byron was needle felted by myself back in 2013, I blogged the making process here! Since then he's toured conventions as the boys' mascot and has even survived a few San Diego Comic Cons! I'm very pleased to see he's looking as good as new and that he's being well looked after.

Also during my wanderings through the convention I bumped into the boys from the Awesome Comics Podcast, where they got me to have a little natter about MULP with them!
They've put my bit of an interview up with their Halloween Special episode, so go take a listen! (interview starts at 00:11:30)

Similarly, following the convention the lovely Gary Watson wrote a fab review on MULP #1 for Comics Anonymous

"The glorious character designs from Sara keep each of them individually recognizable which is no mean feat for a cast of mice and the muted tones in the colouring seems to emphasize that pulp theme which I’ve always been a sucker for. "

Thank you so much for the kind words Gary!

The next convention we'll be attending will be Thought Bubble in Leeds, on the 14th - 15th November, and it'll be our last of the year. There'll have some news regarding that soon!

  1. Hi Sara, looks like your getting back into the convention swing, will MULP 2 be gracing Thought Bubble?
