Big thanks to Su Haddrell and the team for their hard work in organising another brilliant Lawless Comic Con. A truly friendly and laid back event that was a pleasure to attend again last weekend. Lots of laughs and good company and great tro catch up with Laura Howell, Mike Allwood, Mike and Bernadette, Joanne Alexander, David Roach, Leonard Sultana, Joanne Alexander, Stacey Dutton-Whittle, Ben Cullis, Jo Heeley and The77 gang, Alexus Savage, Leonard Sultana, Shane Chebsey, Paul Goodenough, Anna Morozova, Phillip Vaughan, Michael Carroll, Sarah Lea, Stuart Lloyd Gould and many more I've no doubt forgotten due to tiredness.
I'm sorry I didn't spend more time talking to Dan Cornwell and Becky, Ian Edginton, Matt Brooker, Patrick Goddard, John Charles, John Higgins, Sally Hurst, and John Wagner. Really enjoyed catching up with old friend Mick McMahon again after many, many years. Only regret was not getting to see other old friend Dave Gibbons before he left. All in all a fantastic weekend. Hope I came across OK in the interviews despite being bunged up with a cold! Last but certainly not least, thank you to everyone who stopped by my table for a sketch, comic, and chat.
Lawless is an excellent convention dedicated to British comics and has a friendly artmosphere. If you've never been please consider attending next year's show.
I only took a few photos as I was busy so here's a handfull....

The convention programme was once again in the format of a 16 page A5 Lawless comic. Several of us contributed a page for free as part of an adventure scripted by Steve Bull. Here's my page (coloured by Darren Stephens) opposite a page by Andrw Sawyers. The pages will be sold off by The77 to raise money for charity.
