Those comic-creating, no-holds-barred devils at London Underground Comics are back for 2009 with an epic event at London's fantastic 176 Art Gallery in Chalk Farm on Saturday 27th June, from 12 Midday until 7.00pm.
Playing host to over 40 creators from around the country with live music, a cinema screen showcasing animation reels and visual DJing, this 176 comics event -- its location cleverly exposed by our very own Jeremy Briggs back in January, despite LUC's careful teasing as to its exact nature -- promises to be a great day out for the whole family.
There will be free entry for the public and there are 20 (very large) exhibitor tables available which the LUC team are hiring out at £10 for half a table or £6 for a quarter meaning space for between 40 and 80 creators. These amounts are subject to a discount if creators help publicise the event. "We want small pressers from all walks of life and areas of the country," urges organiser Oli Smith. "We want webcomics, autobiography, political, funny, fantasy... you name it, we want it!
Gosh! Comics shop in London have kindly offered to sponsor the festival and exhibitor space is already a quarter full after two days since the official announcement of the event.
