Alternative Press Fair, London, August 2

August 1st, 2009 | comics talk

I stopped in at the Alternative Press Fair in London today and spent more money than I intended to on zines of all shapes and sizes. Because I have no idea what’s going on in the London (or can-reach-London) small press these days, and thought I should obtain a sampling. Jimi, the organiser, is a really nice guy. It’s on again tomorrow (Sunday) — if you’re in London, it’s really worth a look.

Alternative Press Fair

Sunday 2nd August – 11am- 7pm – Free

We will be returning once more to St Aloysius Social centre, where in February we held the first Alternative Press Fair. We hope you’ll join us once more for chilled out Sunday to celebrate comix, zines, poetry, book arts and radical literature. We will have space for around 80 exhibitors and many more visitors so see you there!

  1. Once considered small press, Windell Comics (now incorporating Marvel and DC) are proud to launch their new publication: Windell Classics Compendium Presents SUPERHERO SHOWCASE!

    …and the odd alternative press type thing.

    Thank you, …unashamed to spam since 1937.

  2. Thanks for the tip. I shouldn’t have known – after all I live in this hellhole. I went there after work and discovered some truely great artwork and lots of really talented pro-active people. Great atmosphere! It all resulted in me spending lots of not-yet-earned money on nonsensical screen prints I don’t even have the space for. Yay!
