Well that was another amazing, amazing Bristol Comic and Zine Fair!
Thank you so much to everyone who came, everyone who exhibited and everyone who helped us out, we couldn’t have done it without you.
A special thank you to the Creative Youth Network who run The Station, if you have a second, have a look at their site to see what they do, it’s really great stuff.
Papergirl Bristol not only threw us a great drink n draw the night before at the Surrey Vaults, but were all round helpers and ace people.
Also thanks to all at Roll for the Soul for providing us with a place to wind down afterwards, it was great to catch up with some of you there.
If you’re having BCZF withdrawal symptoms, we’ve added a selection of photos from the day below. Thanks Esme Betamax for being the official photographer for the day – they are beauts.
Lots of love
