Saturday 28th April saw the 4th Leeds Alternative Comics Fair and it was our best yet!
A combination of excellent exhibitors, loads of Twitter action, a Guardian Guide write up and come-inside rainy weather meant footfall was high. There was a great buzz all day and many of our exhibitors saw takings comparable to (or better than!) a large, 2-day convention!
We think everyone had a good time, although a couple of the exhibitors tried to sneak off without saying goodbye.
The staff at A Nation of Shopkeepers in Leeds couldn't have been more helpful on the day. Thanks a lot, guys!
