Beat reader Stephen Aryan sends us some linkage to last weekend’s second Birmingham comics fest in the UK.
There are a number of roundups about the recent Birmingham comic convention last weekend, I blogged briefly about it here,& Geek Syndicate, a UK comics podcast conducted a live podcast interview with Esad Ribic and Adi Granov. It was very funny, but it does have some adult language, as Esad has rather a ribald sense of humour. The podcast is available from here and the talk was recorded, as were other parts of the convention, by ImagineFX magazine. From what I was told a DVD with video footage from the convention will be included in a future issue of the magazine, although no one seemed clear as to which future issue it would appear
A local newspaper, the Birmingham Mail even did a brief video about the convention as a whole, which you can see here.
This was the second year of the Birmingham convention, and it brings up the major UK comic conventions to a staggering 2 events, together with Bristol in May.
Another smaller upcoming event next month in the UK is being held in Leeds, the Thought Bubble Leeds Comic Festival, more info is available here.
EDIT: Pete Ashton’s blog has the picture at the top of the page of Hunt Emerson in a cowboy hat and EVEN MORE.
