Bristol Fitties 2013

Its that time of year again, the sun is out, the sky is blue and Bristol's busting out next weekend. Now, its had its knockers of late but here's a handful of our top tips to keep an eye out for...

Firstly our very own Stacey Whittle, along with Iz McAuliffe, will be hosting another fantabulous 2000AD Mega Panel this year featuring Ian Gibson, Michael Carroll, David Hine, Boo Cook, Mike Collins, Rob Williams, Ben Willsher, Henry Flint, David Roach & John Higgins. Saturday 11th May at 5pm in the Ramada main panel room.

Graham Pearce may or may not have Sgt Mike Battle #19 for sale depending on whether he can get it finished in time. Draw, Graham, draw like the wind! Regardless he will have his back catalogue of SMB and a rough-cut preview of #19.

Jennie Gyllblad ‏will be there with her own table, "being lonely" apparently, so go along and give her a hug from me. She'll also be selling Clockwork Watch Arrival AND Breakaway, Skal, Jenspiration, some new prints along with her old ones.

Dani Abram and Ian Matthews will be there with Razarhawk #1 and #2 along with a special variant cover version of #1 which looks amazing! ‏

Heather L Sheppard ‏will be debuting Sunrise #1 the print version of her gorgeous webcomic. "There's only 75 printed copies, but a digital download with the extra pages will be available to download at the same time - no missing out!" (Print version's £4.50 online, £4 at cons - digital version is £1 online) Heather should also have a few of her travelposter printsDinorawr cards and other bits as well.

Gary Erskine will will have the Roller Grrrls sketchbook and will be sketching too.

Kris Carter will have Lou Scannon issues 1 through 5 for sale - highly recommended.

David Wynne says "I'll be at the Orang Utan Comics table on Saturday, sketching. We'll have Particle Fiction and Hypergirl for sale. Woo!" Incidentally, Particle Fiction now has a new webhome HERE, check it out.

And finally, the ever-fragrant and carnivorous Nic Wilkinson informs us it will sadly be the first Bristol con since it came out that she and Cy Dethan won't be able to attend. "So sad as Bristol has always been the spiritual home of Cancertown." But fear not, sweet SPBMers, Cancertown 1 & 2 are available from Cy's comicsy shop
