Running Order (ON TOP of some of the best self publishing/indie creators in Scotland.)
– COMIC BOOK WORKSHOP (11.30pm): Join Jim Alexander as he hold’s the workshop, covering the main aspects of the writing process. If you’re serious about wanting to work in comics, you’ll make sure that you attend this workshop.
– DR WHO BESIEGED SHOWING (1.00pm): Join us in the upstairs room in the Counting House for the showing of Dr Who Besieged parts 1 & 2. This will be followed by a short Q&A session with members of the cast & crew.
– JUDGE MINTY SHOWING (3.00pm): Again in the upstairs room in the Counting House, but this time with the Judge Minty fan film that took fans by storm. This has taken Judge Dredd fans by storm, and indeed has been played to death at conventions nationwide, but let’s have one more time for the road………..because it’s that GOOD!
If you have yet to experience Judge Minty, or would simply like to hear a bit more about what happened behind the scenes, why not listen to this episode of HERO TALK with the Judge Minty Director of Photography Stephen Green: http://www.herocomicshop.com/podcasts/htalkep43.mp3

– FANDOM PUB QUIZ (4pm in BLIND POET): Join Quiz Master Marc Farrimond downstairs in the Blind Poet for the geek related pub quiz. Marc has organised massive quiz’s at events nationwide, and we are pleased to have his quiz taking part after the mart.
