Tullamore Library Comic Con

Tullamore Library Comic Con takes place this week on Saturday May 18th (10am to 4pm).

The event will see various cosplayers, artists and vendors attending on the day. The day will also host a number of demonstrations, workshops and panels over the course of the day.

I’ll be be attending and will have an Irish Comic News table at the con. The table is there for people to get information on people/books/apps to check out to develop (or even start!) their comic making. All going well I should have some print outs of the information below for people to take away in addition to this post. There will also be some free comics available at the table courtesy of Big Bang comics.

I’ve not tabled at an event before but hopefully some of attendees might be interested in the information at the table.

Do say hello if you’re there on the day 🙂
