Swindon Small Press Day 2018.

This is the second year for the Small Press Event at The Incredible Comic Shop in Swindon today. A great comic shop full of everything that a fan needs. (Along with some dodgy looking small press creators this Saturday). The brainchild of Uber fan and talented artist Sarah Harris. She sat down with myself and Vince and told us that last year’s event was such a success that running another one was a no brainier. Have a listen to Episode 142 of The Awesome Comics Pod for a short interview with Sarah (available at noon on Monday 26th March 2018 on iTunes and the Podbean networks).

I was going to write a long piece about the comics world coming together and laughing and talking and creating but I think that these photos speak better than a thousand words could do.

(No Gang Signs Gander!) Susie Gander had a table selling her comic Perrywinkle as well as some issues of the Little Heroes anthology. She can be seen here posing with artist Andy Hanks.

(Steve Simms - in the hat. Was sharing some original sketching and comics Battle Badgers chat with punters!)

Vince Hunt and myself were there representing The Awesome Comics Podcast and selling our comics. On the right of the photo are Claire Spiller and Jessica Lesley from the art collective ‘Wine and Zine’. Their comics were selling like hot cakes (except to cakes and comics instead...)

Vince even got a cheer when he came out of the toilet! 

The day was organised by the mighty Sarah Harris! This is a real comics community event. If you are lucky enough to get asked next year I can highly recommend attending! Great for sale and laughs. That can’t be bad can it?

Many thanks for reading.


  1. Cheered whilst coming out of the toilet. Classic!


    1. It was a two flush job... He deserved it

    2. Haha, nice one! Just as well really, although I think someone should add a speech bubble to the pic with Vince asking if anyone has a spare fish-knife.


  2. I notice that the Vince-coming-out-of-the-loo photo also features the much discussed uneaten chicken sarnie
