More great stuff on Saturday…

LACF stalwart Gary Bainbridge has got a new comic out for Saturday: ‘Column is a teeny tiny A6 mini comic containing some of my drawings and ponderings on public sculpture. It’s got two different covers and the print run is minuscule, so get yours while they last’, and he’s also got some handsome totebags to carry all the comics you’ll be buying, plus the rest of his great comics, including the Sugar Glider series.
Oli East will be selling his unique series of books, along with some other Blank Slate titles, and he’ll also have a bargain box selling off some of his collection of comics to raise funds for his next project, a trip across France (or failing that, some beers and his bus fare home). And don’t forget about the other fine folks appearing, including John Allison, Dan Berry, James ‘Couk’ Downing (who’s tweets suggest he’s beavering away on something new), Karoline Rerrie, Adam Cadwell and The Pern who’ll all have fantastic things for sale which will definitely make your life immeasurably better.

LACF3 press release!

The 3rd Leeds Alternative Comics Fair will take place on Saturday 1st October, in A Nation of Shopkeepers, Leeds, just behind the Leeds City Art Gallery.

In keeping with previous events, our small but perfectly formed event hopes to bring you some of the best Northern, alternative comics makers, print-makers and illustrators, who will be selling their wares in the quirky, relaxed bar on Cookridge Street.

Don’t like comics? There’ll be lots more on offer, such as craft wear, badges, art and music.

This event’s guest list includes old friends such as Steve Tillotson (Banal Pig), Hugh “Shug” Raine (REET! Comics), Gary Bainbridge, Andy Waugh, Gareth Brookes, Helen “Memo” Entwisle, Huw “Lem” Davies, Ben Clark, Kristyna Baczynski and Geof Banyard (Fetishman), who will be showcasing new work.

New exhibitors include James Downing (COUK), Jim Medway, Isaac Lenkiewicz, Kelly Walton, Bob Milner (Milk Two Sugars) and a cameo appearance from Darryl Cunningham, of Psychiatric Tales fame.

We are also reintroducing the communal table, giving non-exhibitors the chance to bring their comics along to sell. All we ask is that you help man the table for a short period of time.

The event will run from 12 noon until 5pm and is FREE to enter! So come along, have a browse, a chat, a drink and a fish finger sarnie!

Hugh “Shug” Raine (Reet Comic)

Gary Bainbridge

Andy Waugh

Gareth Brookes

We’re really happy to have these guys involved, they all make really fantastic comics and stuff,  and they will be a great addition to the fair. Also don’t forget, we will be having a big communal table this time, so please feel free to bring your own comics down (all we ask is that you’re willing to help out for a bit taking the money on the communal table if necessary). That’s more or less it, we’re waiting on a couple of confirmations and we will update this page when we get them.
