The Canny Comic Con! The one-day festival celebrating comics and sequential art returns to Newcastle City Library on Saturday 18th March – 10.30-3.30, all ages, FREE.

There’ll be a hall of stalls jam-packed with talented comics creators from around the region and beyond, representing a wide range of art styles, subject matter and levels of experience, with attendees ranging from accomplished pros to local open-to-all DIY comics group, the Paper Jam Comics Collective.

There’ll also be events & activities, including: talks from Applied Comics Etc and Black Lodge Press, a Just A Comics Minute panel (daft comics-themed homage to a certain Radio 4 panel show), and for anyone wanting to get drawing themselves, there’ll be hands-on workshops – including a session on designing your own Star Wars character with Nigel Dobbyn, plus drop-by doodling throughout the day.
