The Midlands is alive, with the sound of comic conventions
We enter something of a quadruple bill across the whole of the Midlands area where it seems comic conventions are on the rise. In a four weekend slot, we see a convention in Leicester, Leamington, Nottingham and finally Walsall at the end of the month, with its own local event celebrating Halloween in a comic-con style. This follows the inaugural and rather successful Birmingham Comics Festival and the second year of ICE hitting the city of Birmingham. Things are finally starting to look up for those based in the middle of the country after the somewhat untimely end of BICS.
