Sheffield Comics Network holds its first micro comic con in Kelham Island

10 Nov

Founded by comic book expert Bambos Georgiou (www.bamcomics.co.uk) in April 2016, Sheffield Comics Network (www.facebook.com/sheffieldcomicsnetwork), a monthly meet-up for comic creatives, is holding the first SHEFFIELD MICRO COMIC CON on Saturday 2nd December 12 to 5 p.m at the popular community run pub The Gardeners Rest, 105 Neepsend Road, Kelham Island, S3 8AT (0114 272 4978).

This SHEFFIELD MICRO COMIC CON will include opportunities to meet comic creatives who have worked on children’s comic strips such as Wallace & Gromit, The Bash Street Kids, Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D and adult strips including Viz Comics’ Felix and His Amazing Underpants and Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula. There will also be a special guest appearance by a Northern artist who has worked for Marvel,  DC and Titan (to be announced next month).

There will be comics for all ages on sale from The Eagle, to Deadline to The Beano as well as comic zines and prints by local emerging talents. Sheffield’s annual art and illustration convention ROBOT is also sponsoring a table. There will be a film show of a Captain America serial (b/w) followed by El Santo  vs The Martian Invasion (b&w subs) playing in the Snug all afternoon.

“Since its inception in 2016 the Sheffield Comics Network has bloomed.” said Bambos. “With the support of Ruskin in Sheffield (www.ruskininsheffield.com) it has delivered highly successful comic drawing workshops for children, most recently for The Big Draw in the Millennium Gallery. This event is our first opportunity to showcase comic books themselves and the comic book talent right here in Sheffield. ”

The event is FREE and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

See you on the 2nd December!
