The reports coming in from the Bristol Comics Expo this weekend are surprisingly lucid thus far — pretty shocking, but guess the big drinkers are still in detox. The Forbidden Planet Blog has a nice write up with lots of pictures, including the one above which shows the Olde English tradition of congoers being trooped into a dungeon for torture and flaying. This is by FAR the most sober report on an English con we have EVER read.
Pia Guerra also reports:
The Bristol expo is so much fun. The attendance is a couple of thousand or so with makes it very cozy. It’s one of the most polite shows I’ve ever been to, very refreshing. The signings went well and we have a few more set for tomorrow, an 11am spot at the American Dreams booth and another one in the autograph area, possibly at noon.
The day’s only marked negative was taking a break outside for some air and while resting on a bus stop bench we witnessed (or rather heard) a pigeon run over by a car. Gah!
The official con site has lots of pictures of cosplay up — they have their own way of doing it — BUT NOT the Eagle Award winners. Hm. Priorities!
