Last Saturday saw Disconnected Press at the inaugural Melksham Comic Con, a contrast after our visit to the boozy fringes of Kapow the weekend before.

Hayley from local comic store Komix, and her team of volunteers, put on an amazing day. Humble folk like us were lined up alongside the likes of Paul Cornell, the lovely Mike Collins and Barry Kitson. There was a great buzz to the room all day, with parents, children, pets and the odd droid asking about comics, talking comics, drawing comics…. We may even have snapped up a new artist for later in the year….!

All in all, a great day, a great show, and hopefully a fixture for the small, local comic con calendar in 2013. For all the negativity and May-nay-saying that’s been around recently, this was a gem of a show,
