Friend of LACF Helen ‘Memo’ Entwisle (who unfortunately can’t exhibit this time) is running a zine workshop at the West Yorkshire Print Workshop on Saturday 19th May, so if you’re inspired to get making zines but don’t know where to start, the info is here and details of the last workshop are here.

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.
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!
We’ve pretty much confirmed the line up now for the 3rd Leeds Alternative Comics Fair, and again we want to feature artists and creators from the North and we’ve tried to bring together a broad range of people with a really interesting mix of comics and other products. Exhibiting this time are Friends of LACF:
And coming to the fair for the first time are:
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.
Here’s a couple of things you will be able to read/buy/make grubby with your grubby fingers at the 2nd Leeds Alternative Comics Fair this weekend:
