Marvellous Macc-Pow!

Back from a very enjoyable day at Macc-Pow yesterday, the 4th annual comics show in Macclesfield. With over 1,000 attendees and a pleasant atmosphere throughout, this was the best one yet! Good to met some very nice and enthusiastic readers of all ages, and to catch up with comics friends old and new. My thanks to organiser Marc Jackson and his team for the invite and hospitality, and thanks to everyone who stopped by my table for a sketch and/or comic! 

I didn't have much time to take photos but here's a few...

Great to spend time with wonderful artist/writer Rachael Smith, who had the table next to me. Check out her books here:
On my other side was my old pal David Leach, creator of Psycho Gran
Across the aisle was the Beano's Nigel Parkinson and colourist Nika Nartova. 
Another shot of Nigel and Nika, hard at work...
It was great to finally meet artist Jessica Lucas after being Facebook friends for ages. See her website here:
All in all, a fun day, proving that small comics-dedicated conventions can be as busy and engaging as the large multi-media ones. There's room for both kinds of events in the UK comics industry, and long may that be so.
