5 By 5 Festival Cancelled

The mysterious 5 By 5 Festival announced for this year, which caused plenty of discussion on comics news groups on both sides of the Atlantic after it was wrongly linked with rumoured plans for a ComicCon in the UK, has been cancelled.

Organiser Liam Fisher told downthetubes this morning that the Festival has been cancelled "due to a lead sponsor dropping out last minute.

"To continue this year we would have to charge and that's not something we want to do," he says. "We're planning to launch the festival next year exactly how we intended it to be and we'll be presenting monthly four day film events from August onwards."
