October’s Smörgåsbord topic was Sunshine! With a little side challenge – to put a depressing spin on the subject. Some excellent zines were swapped:
(the more I look at this one the more I love it)
(I didn’t get a copy of the zine version of this so these photos are of the original!)
Did I miss any? I don’t think so but let me know! Having these zines as a talking point last night was brilliant, especially as SO MANY new people came – it was great meeting you all! It seems like the Edinburgh comic scene is really thriving at the minute. And excitingly we had enough people come to… *drumroll* GET THE BODA SMORGASBORD! This is basically free cheese for everybody, conditional on having thirteen or more people attend. It tasted like VICTORY!
Because it seems like there are a lot of talented comic people about lately, we’ve been talking about the possibility of running a small pop-up comics mart in Edinburgh. If any of you ELC members (or other interested Scottish comic people) would like to get involved please get in touch! It’d be good to get an idea of how many people are interested. Also if you have any suggestions for good places in Edinburgh to run this kind of thing I’d like to hear them! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The topic for next month’s Smörgåsbord zine-swap is: SUITCASE. Looking forward to seeing you all (and your zines) in November!
