Invasion Colchester 2012
Each year Colchester is invaded by cosplayers – usually a lot of Star Wars / Star Trek / comics characters who hang around the streets for the day. There are also a few folks who will sign stuff for you. Here are a few photographs – I actually remembered to take my camera into town this year! More about the origins – and the rather more serious intent – of Invasion Colchester can be found here.
Are you sure these are the droids we're looking for?
Batman dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna dunna Batman!
Wonder Woman, Trotters, Ghostbusters and ... huh?
Signing stuff... Ted Western (the almost completely bold chap on the far right behind the table), who was a propman on Star Wars and who briefly appears in the Cantina and end celebration scenes; Pam Rose is an actress who also appeared in the Cantina scene as a character named Leesub Sirln; Alan Flyng is an actor who played an Imperial officer.
END OF PRINT-RUN SALE! 25% OFF FOR THE REST OF MARCH Arena Click here for details and payment options "This book goes straight to the top of my large reading pile" - Graeme Neil Reid "With reality TV overload and the rise of the risque and the brutality of today’s society, this story still has a pertinent message for those of us who are willing to listen to it. In fact, I think the story is more relevant today than it was in 1979." - Colin Noble, Down the Tubes "The story is a fun read, but the star of the show is the art. Alcatena is a class act." - Hibernia Comics

Lion King of Picture Story Papers Click here to order "It's a great read in itself and has sent me back to the Lion comic to re-read some of my childhood favourites. The pictures are reproduced crystal clearly and even this old man can read the original art ... It's a gorgeous book and if we are snow-bound as the media has been saying for weeks, I have plenty to keep me amused this chilly January weekend!" - Norman Boyd.
Sexton Blake Annual 1941 Click here to order "If you've been meaning to give Sexton Blake's adventures a try, this would be a great place to start. I've seen the actual annuals go on Ebay for three or four hundred bucks, so this is definitely a bargain too." - Singular Points.
