Bedford Comic Con was AWESOME!

I'm back from Bedford Comic Con (aka NICE) and what a fantastic weekend! Thanks to Jeff Chahal, Bub Chahal and family for organising such a great celebration of comics and for being a brilliant host, looking after all the guests. A truly nice convention. So good to catch up with friends Mike and Bernadette Collins, Aneke, DaNi, Pete Doherty, Alan Davis, David Hine, Dylan Teague, Dave Elliott, Ryan Brown, Sean Phillips, Mark Buckingham, Ben Cullis, and many more too numerous to list. 
NICE is a genuine comics celebration organised by genuine comics fans, focusing on comic art and the friendship and cameraderie within the comics community. Many thanks to those who bought comics, sketches, and art!
Wish I'd taken far more photos but here are those I do have....
Awesome artist Anya Morozova at her table.
