Bristol Comic Expo 2012 – The Markosia Showcase


This year Markosia are going all out to entertain visitors to the Bristol Comic Expo with an event they are dubbing a ‘Markosia Showcase’.

We’ve not reported too much on the Brisol Comic Expo so far and as it’s takling place  May 12-13th we figured it’s time we changed that and started cranking up our coverage engines for the show. Mike Allwood, one of the team behind the show, sent us over a press release revealing a grand masterplan hatched by those clever people at Markosia and we figured this was good place to start. As part of the convention Markosia will be hosting and **all singing, all dancing  showcase event for their titles, which include Bayou Arcana, White Knuckle,Kindred SpiritsHypergirl and Sleeze Castle Etcetera.

Expo Attendees will be treated to presentations from the creative teams present, signings, an art show as well as special hard back editions on offer for three of their titles (with free books with each purchase). Also taking part in the fun and games will be the very interesting transmedia project which is Clockwork Watch that I’ve been following with interest and looking forward to seeing what the team have to say about the project.

All in all it is certainly a grand idea and if there’s one thing I love seeing in the indie scene it’s grand ideas so hopefully I’ll be able to steal myself away from my own table to check out some of the events.

** singing and dancing so far has not been confirmed but I live in hope and stand ready to offer my services as a sassy song and dance act
