BY ORGANIZER PATRICK FINDLAY
On March 20th, London sees the first dedicated web and mini comix event ever held in the UK, possibly even the world. The event is detailed here: www.ukwebcomixthing.co.uk. The event starts at 9 a.m. and finishes at 6 p.m.. There will be over 36 featured stands and over 60 exhibitors with comix ranging from new web based comix to long running traditional format work; all home grown and creator driven.


As well as exposing a veritable wealth of talent for the general public, there are a host of other attractions. There's a computer workshop where newbies are introduced to getting a web comic together. Portfolio workshops enable existing creators to get some feedback from industry veterans on improving their art. Also there will be a best web and mini comix competition open to all, and a count the pages competition, all offering cash prizes. There'll also be live internet access and the highly acclaimed Worlds Table which presents similar work from around the world from creators who couldn't be there on the day as well as a whole load more!

It's going to be a great day so if your interested in web & mini comics at any level, then get on board.

The event is taking place at the Octagon, Mile End Road, Stepney, London, E1 4NS, nearest tube stepney Green. doors open at 9am and shut at 6pm. Costs n the door, n advance.

So far there are 36 individual exhibitor units: http://www.ukwebcomixthing.co.uk/Exhibitors.htm
