Hey ho. It was Dunfermline Comic Con last weekend and it’s fast becoming one of the highlights of the Scottish comics year. A bunch of ELCers were there plying their wares …
This chap is Craig Cunningham who had his comic collection Ruined and popular Inkbots card prints.
This excitable lady is Ell Walker. She had her various comics including Beast in the Woods and her art prints.
Claire Hubbard was also there with her table of goodies. In there are her comic The Cats that Stared and the anthology she edited Video Games for Good.
Zu Dominiak had her 24 hour comic The Orb available among a plethora of other comics.
Zu and Claire evaded the cameras around their tables, however they were caught posing later on.
Hari Conner was displaying her colourful art including the comics Bernie the Demon and the almost (almost!) finished series Nyx in the Overworld.
Steven Ingram was there debuting the final part of his comic Left. Here he’s holding up the series in a thoroughly normal manner.
Also around was Luke Surl with his Suit-Up! playing cards. Apart from sneaking in the background of this pic he somehow avoided the cameras though.
A great, bubble tea fueled, day was had by all. Thanks to Little Shop of Heroes for putting on such a good event!
