Warrior Remembered in Manchester

Legendary British comics editor Dez Skinn is back in Manchester again next weekend (he was there only a couple of weeks ago for the relaunch of Starburst). "There's an all-day celebration of one of my old titles reaching its 30th birthday...," he tells us. "That's WARRIORcon on Saturday July 2 from 11-5pm at the city's top pub: The Lass O'Gowrie .

"And if you're a Doctor Who fan, book in somewhere cheap for the night and get back to the pub the next day for their fourth Doctor Who pubcon (and Kev F's Scottish Falsetto Glove Puppets). You could even stay for Monday and catch me old chum Mr B do his chap-hop routine at the same venue."
