Hot Off The (Indy) Press!

Given that due to us having to pull out of Hi-Ex we were expecting our 2010 show schedule not to kick off until May, we're delighted to announce that we've just been invited to have a stall at the inaugural Independent Press Day taking place here in Leicester on 20th March - the weekend before we were originally to be up in Inverness. Taking place at De Montfort University and perhaps 10 minutes away from Time Bomb HQ, this is the first time we'll have the pleasure of exhibiting at a show right on our doorstep.

There seems to be quite a lot going on throughout the day judging by the official website with more than forty writers giving talks and readings between 10.30am - 16.30pm and a large exhibitors hall featuring independent book publishers mainly from across the East Midlands. It looks like we'll be the only comics publishers there too, so we're really looking forward to seeing what reaction our diverse one-shots will receive from a decidedly literary crowd, and it will be interesting to see what the indie press book scene is like - as friendly and welcoming as the indie press comic scene we hope!
