Should the guest list be updated with any more guests, if the above weren’t steller enough, we will update here.
As well as the guest list, ICN will be working at the con also. As ICN chief Tommie Kelly says; “DICE have very kindly offered ICN a free table at DICE to host all of the small press comic sales. While this is not ideal, I am aware that people would like their own tables and do the personal sale, there are a number of factors in play. There is a space element (lots going on, not that much room) and a cost factor (DICE has to cover it’s cost, make a profit etc to continue). DICE can’t afford to give everyone a table and don’t want to charge everyone stupid Table Fee money either. A central location for all small press/independent seems like the best middle ground.
SO, if you want to have your comic on sale at DICE, leave a comment here (http://www.irishcomicnews.com/2012/08/small-press-at-dice/) letting us know and then drop in your comics to THE BIG BANG shop in Dundrum in good time before the event. Bring an invoice book with how many you have on sale and what you want to sell them for. No charge/costs will be taken from your profit (But I would ask that maybe you leave a tip for the guy/guys who are giving up their time to man the table, but this is completely up to you). You will then be able to collect your money after the event.”
Other details such as the start times for either day etc. are still to be announced and when they will we will let you know. Mark this date in your calender, weather you intend on going to meet your professional heroes or you want to sell your comic at our table, it promises to be a major event in the comics calender this year.
