A COMICA REVIEW BY:

ANDREW SALMOND


Andrew Salmond is manager at one of London's landmark comics emporiums, Gosh Comics, home to a great selection of comics work and a store noted for not only selling the comics but offering some solid support of the medium too, from small press to Indy to the major publishers. Andrew's comments about Comica appeared on the FPI Blog as part of their Best of the Year feature in January 2011.

Special mention should be made, too, (as it should every year, really) for the efforts of Paul Gravett and his erstwhile partner in crime Peter Stanbury, and their tireless promotion of comics to the world at large. The ongoing stream of Comica-related events throughout the year spoils us, really, and their efforts shouldn’t be taken for granted.
