Around 1000 people came to our Comic Takeover of Falkirk Library on Saturday 25th November. Creator panels, Comic Kids area, Big Quiz, Green Screen Photo Booth and loads of hugely talented artists, crafters and writers sharing their work on our stalls.

A packed day included our Big Geek Quiz. Our winners claimed a tidy haul of Image Comics. Thanks to Image for sending that big box of goodies across the pond!

Our Green Screen photo booth was huge hit! We dropped visitors into the photo background of their choice, so some boldly went into space, while others stopped at The Shire for second breakfast!

Look at our cute cosplayers! All hail Adventure Time’s Ice King, our costume competition winner!

Our comic kids area was busy all day with Lego and superhero design. We didn’t specify height, so we did get some big kids joining in on the action.

We recorded our panel, which you’ll be able to hear shortly here on this blog! Sha Nazir of BHP Comics chaired the discussion with artist Clare Forrest and David Bishop, author and former editor of 2000AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine.
