Bolstered by some amazing coverage in the local press, tweets from comics folk and Scottish creatives, and mentions on the Forbidden Planet blog, we had people streaming through the doors from the start. All told there were about 50 people who attended.

All in all it was a great afternoon, and people were I think very pleased with the event. I got to chat with some interesting people of all ages, who share a real passion for comics. All most people need is some encouragement, to see that it's actually quite easy to get starting making and distributing comics, and to see that they are not alone in thinking comics are a great thing to do. I hope we provided that.
