Book Now for BICS

Retailers and publishers are being urged to get tables booked for the Birmingham International Comic Show, which doesn't take place until October - but spaces are booking fast.

The event takes place on 4th and 5th October 2008 and is now the largest UK comics event of the year, with over 170 exhibitor spaces, an impressive guest list of creators including US comics legend Michael Golden.

"BICS 2008 is an essential event for any retailer, publisher or reader of comics and manga or related media," feels co-organiser Shane Chebsey. "We only have a few tables left now, so anyone who'd like to exhibit who hasn't already booked will need to do so as soon as possible."
