W.I.P. Comics

WIP Field Trip: South London Comic and Zine Fair!

Stanley Halls, 12 South Norwood Hill, London SE25 6AB

As a little break from our usual schedule, on Saturday 14th of July it’s the South London Comic and Zine Fair (or the snappily titled SLCZF) down in South Norwood. Over 30 of the UK’s top artists, writers and illustrators will be there selling their wares, including your very favourite Meetup organiser: me.

Entry is free, it’s on between 12pm and 6pm (I think) and it would be great if you could come along.

Barbican Comic Forum

The Barbican Comic Forum is an informal group dedicated to the understanding and enjoyment of the multifaceted medium of comic books and graphic novels. Make friends, converse, get recommendations and choose from a wide selection of books to borrow and take home. From novices to fanatics: open to all. Three things to note: 1. If you don’t have a City of London library card you can now join online (Anyone can join – you don’t have to live or work in the city to be a member: so come on – what’s stopping you?). 2. If you’re a little late – don’t worry about it. You can still just grab a chair and join in. 3. For those of you old enough: when the session finishes there will be a few of us heading to the pub.

Comica Social Club

Comica Social Club
Wednesday 25th July
6:00pm – 10:00pm
Central Bar, Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Rd, London SE1 8XX

The Comica Social Club is a monthly meetup for people interested in comics, manga and graphic novels.

It is informal. You can chat, greet, gossip or network. Talk about your stuff, your big plan, your collection list (but we may run away) or what awaits in the reading nook?

The Comica Social Club is every last Wednesday in the month—except December.

Social Media can help you start, build and maintain relationships with people in comics all over the world. However, meeting people face to face can make your relationships even better. Social Media accounts for about 30 per cent of all word-of-mouth contact, far less than you might think. It means that face-to-face interaction accounts for 70 per cent of all word-of-mouth contact. It makes sense to attend Comica Social Club whenever you can and keep up with the buzz. There are some people not using Facebook and this Comica Social Club Newsletter is our way to stay in touch with you.

We all look forward to meeting you.

Come and Have Fun and Make New Friends!
