leave a comment »


The British Comics Show (formerly the Birmingham Comics Show) has been awarded Arts Council Funding.

“This extra money will help us to enhance the BICS experience for all those attending the show, from fans to guests, and from retailers to publishers,” he added. “It’s a huge step forward for the show and for the medium of comics in the UK. It’s yet another sign of further recognition for comics as an art form and entertainment medium.” Shane Chebsey, BICS.

Visit Down The Tubes for further information, and visit the BICS site for information on the lineup this year.
