Frome Comic Con 2017



Sunday 13th August saw the return of Frome Comic Con!

Once more the town was transformed! The Three Swan's pub hosted a Harry Potter themed House Sorting, The Archangel was turned into a Star Wars themed virtual reality bar, there were video games, Doctor Who themed spaces, Ghostbusters in the Library, a dealer hall in the Cheese and Grain, and of course all us writers and artists exhibiting at the Black Swan Arts round tower!


Having attended solo last year, Matt was able to join me with Knight and Dragon, and MULP issues #1-4!
Exhibiting alongside us were of course that fantastic duo Lizzie and Conor Boyle, who being local to Frome invited us to join them for the second year running. They had all their Disconnected Press books on their table.


Owen Watts made a reappearance, bringing with him all volumes of The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel and doodles of angry carrots!


And another familiar face returned to The Black Swan Arts with The Red Mask From Mars, Vince Hunt! Accompanied by Shaun Doble, creator of Descending Outlands!


We were also joined by a few new faces to FCC! Dani Abram and Ian Matthews came along with copies of Worry Wart and Razarhawk #1-2, love those two!


The lovely Sam Webster came along with copies of Joe Cape and Unfamiliar Skies! He also brought his ADORABLE children who were both dressed up like characters from My Little Pony!


They were at Cardiff Expo, they were at the Swindon comic book signing, and there they were again at Frome Comic Con! They're everywhere! Gavin Mitchell and Emily Owen, that brilliant couple responsible for art on Trolltooth Wars and the critically acclaimed zine about mental health Brain Shoodles.


Nothing but fantastic times can be had when you are around this lovely lot. It was great to see so many people venturing into to take a look at all that was on offer. 
We had a few familiar faces returning to get the latest issues of MULP after buying #1-2 from me last year along with a host of new readers, who I hope will enjoy everything that they picked up! thank you all for stopping by!

I believe that compared to last year Frome Comic Con has taken everything to the next level! The cosplay was on point, the dealer hall in the Cheese and Grain was buzzing, and there were competitions and raffles galore! It really does prove to be a fantastic day out for the whole family whatever your interests!

Any convention where I get to hug a 7ft Chewbacca is instantly a success! Thank you everyone who helped put on this brilliant event and of course massive huge thanks to Lizzie and Conor for inviting us! I can't wait to see what Frome pulls out next year!

My Boyfriend borrowed my book for our holiday to Rome, little did I know he's one of those people...

Paws for Thawt #5

I love to watch scary films, but the only time I get to watch them is when the boyfriend is out for the night. He's not a fan...
