1 - ‘Brave Ewe World’ by Tpcat. Tpcat’s light, innocent style is frequently twisted by the dark humour and even darker subject matter. That’s why I love it so much and have most of her books in my collection. Terome McNally of Little old Man usually mans the table with his own brilliant works in tow.
2 - ‘Don Quixote’ adapted by Rob Davis from the Selfmade Hero table. A quick flick through and the strong style convinced me I had to get a copy. Looking forward to reading this, as I used to be obsessed by Cervantes’ creation when I was a kid.
3 - ‘Hero: 9 - 5’ by the OUC team with Markosia! You should absolutely get this book. New cover edition.
4 - ‘Omnipathy’ #1 by Joe Sparrow. I recognised the pixelart comic from a DD on DeviantArt. Very happy to have a copy signed by the artist in my hand.
5 - ‘Sly’ Print by echogreens.deviantart.com. Very nice piece, though I feel a little guilty as the artist had to replace a ruined print whilst trying to sign it. Oi vei.
6 - Postcard signed by dA’s one and only Humon! I follow her ‘Scandinavia and the World’ webcomic and it was a great surprise to see her there. Also got a booze demon badge.
7 - You have the button, you have the badge… it’s time for ‘Depressed cat on Twitter’. Because why not? It is virtually impossible to go wrong with cats.
8 - Then I spotted one of my favourite ‘Left 4 Dead 2’ fanarts from deviantArt. The one sweet thing about the MCM is that you have a good chance of running into the artists you follow on tumblr, deviantart and otherwise.
9 - Sticker by Exitstageleft.deviantart.com. Beautiful colour palettes but it’s a shame that they were so small and not a4.
10 - Ran into Reaperfox, always a pleasure… albeit a brief one.
11 - Josceline Fenton, the author and artist of ‘Hemlock’. It caught my eye at the May’s convention and I had to get both books there and then. Sadly, she’d already sold out of #3 on Saturday. Booh.
12 - My ‘Comic Industry Professional’ pass. The one that makes me feel like a bit of a fraud yet quite proud and awesome at the same time. :)
