The first Lakes Comic Art Festival ran “like a well oiled machine”. Reviews

“One day all comic book shows will be like this”.

Will Trina write about it in her blog when she’s back home in San Francisco? I hope so!

And the next festival is in preparation! The splendid Julie Tait and her heroic team have already started organising, with the dates set for 17th – 19th October 2014.
