London Comic Mart (Comic Blog #4)

The rucksack is off and it’s time to look at todays purchases.

I’m not sure how I found out about the London Comic Mart, however it was a lot better than their self promotion merits. If you were to walk past the Royal National Hotel or even through their reception, other than a hand written note you wouldn’t even know it was happening.

Once found, the event consists of 3 rooms full of comics, DVDs collectible cards and all things ‘geek’. The event has none of the flair or sense of theatre  of the main London events, however if you have a checklist of DC, Marvel and Independents required then this is your place. 

Another thing that was clear to see was the ‘collector’ nature of the attendees of the event. At every desk there  was a least one person with a notepad full of different comics and what editions were required. Usually these type of gatherings are fun and have a social nature, however today seemed more business focussed. 

Either way I left with a 4 and 6 part mini series for Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Return to Barrow & Criminal Macabre Mystery for those who are interested). All in all I got 17 comics for just under £15, and when the next event is hosted in February I will be sure to have my notepad ready.
