Having taken a year off in 2016, Leamington Comic Con is back with a new date, a new venue, and a line-up featuring some of the best of small press, as well as Big Two superstars Chris Wildgoose and Marc Laming. We catch up with organisers Dan Mallier and Lisa-Marie Nelson to find out what we can look forward to on March 25th!
This month sees the return of the excellent Leamington Comic Con to the UK calendar on Saturday 25th March at the Royal Spa Centre. With an event that is set to feature big name guests from DC and Marvel, such as Chris Wildgoose and Marc Laming, as well as the best of the small press scene (including Pipedream Comics who will be bringing the Indie Showcase edition of The Pull List), as well as a Cosplay Catwalk and more, it’s a welcome return to one of our favourite cons of the year!
Following the huge critical success of Porcelain: Bone China and Briar, we take a look at Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose’s forgotten masterpiece, the dialogue free Butterfly Gate. But will this piece of ambitious story-telling being able to compete with the rich world building and stunning characterisation that we are used to from Read and Wildgoose?
