Post London MCM Expo stuff

Hello! A massive thank you to the lovely people who visited our table at MCM Expo last weekend! We had a really great time seeing lots of friends, drawing pictures and eating too much cake! (Sarah is in the photo)

The fox head that was making our comics look cool was created by Grace from The What Not Tree

If you'd like to read about the publications on the table see our pre-mcm post

On Sunday morning we got up early and went on the cable carts before the show opened! Look its the Olympic park! and lots of yellow people jogging round a car park! We got off and had a look - they where people doing Run To The Beat! We could hear their music echoing around near the excel centre before we got on the cable carts.

Thanks everyone for such a fun weekend! Not long till Thought Bubble! :)

Monster pre London MCM Expo 2012 post!!

Inspired Comics will be at London MCM Expo for the first time! We'll be in the comics village and you can find our table on row C. We'll be there Friday though till Sunday! The images above are the covers for all the anthologies we've created as a collective that will be available from the event.

Sarah and Lily's What's The Time Mrs Woolf? has been running for a whole year! The latest issue has a spooky theme and I'm very excited that its ready to take to London at the weekend. (I'm not sure which back issues are in stock, but don't worry because you don't need to read in a particular order)

Sarah will be around all weekend so I hope she is bringing plenty of copies of her mini comics The Bad Fairy Bakery and Patience is a Virtue

Sarah and I have also created our first music zine this autumn! It features articles, illustrations and comics featuring Blur, The Kinks, Everything Everything, Peace, Gorillaz, De La Soul, Little Dragon, Helen Arney, Bellatrix, Gil Scott-Heron, Ghostpoet, DANGER DOOM, The Subways, The Clash, Elastica, Phillipa Hannah, The Unthanks and Young Knives

I'll be taking my new comic Jumping The Shark, a sequel to Best Day Ever. The printed version of the webcomic includes an exclusive bonus comic! I'll also have copies of some of my mini comics.

Shaz will also be around for some of the weekend and I'll be taking copies of her comic Thin Ice which was created for her final major project earlier in the year.

And we'll have the usual badges, stickers, plectrums, bookmarks post cards and art cards!

We've also photocopied a limited amount of free mini comics and zines to bundle together and hand out at the event

I think thats everything - listing it all feels like a test!

Thanks again for reading and maybe I'll see you at the weekend!

The anthology we're working on is going through some changes at the moment. The release has been pushed back to 2013 so I'll let you know more about that over the next couple of months. Sorry about the implication that I would be posting some of our development work in September, but I'm going to be saving that for the months closer to the release.

We're still working hard over the autumn and we have 3 events coming up ...

Birmingham Zine Festival - Independent Publishing Fair - Saturday 13th October 2012

London MCM Expo - Friday 26th - Sunday 28th October 2012

Thought Bubble Festival - Saturday 17th - Sunday 18th November 2012

I'm hoping that next week I can get some photos of some of the new stuff we'll be launching this autumn

Thanks for reading!
