Free Comic Book Day

Three quarters of Family Green spent Saturday in central London, enjoying all that Free Comic Book Day had to offer.

First it was off to Forbidden Planet to say hello to Tharg's representative on Earth (a.k.a. 2000AD and Megazine editor) Matt Smith and Tiernen Trevallion (who illustrated one of my Inferno! short stories years ago), who were appearing along with artist extraordinaire Henry Flint.

Next we headed into the heart of Soho to Gosh! Comics, where half of Family Green made the most of the art activities on offer for the discerning younger comic book fan.

I'm not sure who's taking advice on creating comics from whom here.

All in all it was another inspiring day, and we didn't do too badly on the free comic books front either.
