Yesterday morning (Before this month's meet), a few of the comic-gang (Jason Franks, Brendan Hallyday, and I) got up early to help James Andre move house. I haven 't done one of these in a while, but suddenly remembered the heaving and bruising of getting beds, fridges, and sofas up stairs and around tight corners that have no chance in hell of fitting. Hey... it was a good work out with HUGE tetris pieces.
Anyway, 5 1/2 hours later, we boogied our way down to the meet, albeit fashionably late. We were astonished to find one of the BIGGEST meetups I can remember!
There must have been 40-50 comic nuts in that pub when we arrived! Aside from about 4-5 people off in a far corner, the rest of the place was chocka-block full of comicers.
I snapped Matt Emery leaving as we arrived.
We know why Jason came, eh...?
Some of the big guns... Tristian Hugh Jones, Katie-Houghton-Ward, and Tom Taylor (with son).
