Taking place at the Festing Hotel on Albert Road, The Annual Review of Sequential Endeavours (Facebook Link) invites all comics makers. artists, animators and enthusiasts to enjoy a day of workshops, live comic creation, mass collage and, of course, some beers and "a bit of blether".
The first minicon event organised by Portsmouth Independent comic creators and enthusiasts, creatives already involved include No Refund Comics and other local comics creators, but it's already attracting the interest of artists and writers from further afield.
