Having missed Caption, this was a nice interim comics fix, and there was a good crowd there (the UK comics scene is full of good people) including Kate Brown (of course!), Paul Duffield, Neill and Di Cameron, Matt Badham, David Fickling, Ben Sharpe and his wife Phill, Andrew Wildman, Emma Viecelli... and quite a few more! I was very happy to have got my copy of The Spider Moon signed by Kate and would urge anyone reading this who hasn't got their own to go and get one - it's a beautiful book - all the DFC Library books are.
After trying to fit too much comics conversation into too short a time, Ellie and I went to Bella Italia on George Street for a late dinner, then got back onto the now-clear motorway, and home.
