Ho ho ho! It’s a christmas comic!

Handmade and bound was a massive success yesterday. With the comics stall, exhibiting 15 artists’ excellent creations we had a great time and made a few quid to help with those darned christmas presents! Which brings me onto the subject of a christmas comix zine that i’m putting together just in time for christmas it’ll be called “wake up to christmas” and will cover all aspects of the festive period from gripes and grumbles to joyeux noel in the form of comic strips, articles, stories or whatever you fancy. the deadline is the weekend of 15th november, so email me at jimigherkin(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk if you’re interested.

Also, keep an eye out here as we are planning another event for february! Yay! See ya,
