  1. The dates for the London Comic Mart in 2020 have now been announced: 16th February 22nd March 17th May 21st June 16th August 4th October 6th December As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is free from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table may be fully open for business then. You may want to check the http://londoncomicmart.co.uk website for any last-minute updates, or further details. The Royal National Hotel is within easy walking distance of Russell Square underground station, and not all that far from Euston and King's Cross main line stations, come to that. The official closing time is 4:00pm, or when the dealers run out of stuff to sell. We'll continue to have our Funko Pop friends alongside us, and of course it's a great opportunity to pick up some hard-to-find dvds, blu-rays, and books at bargain prices too...

    London Comic Mart Dates - 2019

    … And I've just edited the original post here. To quote today's Facebook post:

    London Comic Mart Dates - 2019

    In case you are following this thread, I should mention that the October 6th Comic Mart can't take place at the Royal National Hotel, as they are having ongoing refurbishment/repair work done there. Instead, while the date stays the same, we've been relocated to The Pillar Hall over at Olympia, just a couple of minutes from the Underground station. The hotel should be back to normal in time for the December event! http://londoncomicmart.co.uk/

    London Comic Mart Dates - 2019

    It's a joint event now - still with all our favourite comics dealers, but with added tables full of Funko Pops, for all the upcoming dates. Judging by the most recent mart, there are some rare Funko Pops, and some good multibuy deals to look for too... but the comics side hasn't been cut back. Hopefully people who come for the Funko Pops will be tempted to buy some comics, books, dvds etc while they are in the Galleon Suite.
  5. The dates for all of 2019 have now been announced: Sunday 17th February Sunday 7th April Sunday 12th May Sunday 23rd June Sunday 18th August Sunday 6th October - cancelled Sunday 1st December As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is free from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is fully open for business then.

  6. Showmasters have released the schedule for 2018 now: 4th February 6th May 1st July 2nd September 7th October 4th November 2nd December So, a busier year than 2017. As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is free from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is fully open for business then.

    London Comic Mart Dates - 2017

    There are some people who do sell trading cards, so hopefully they will be open to making a deal, if you have some cards they like, in suitably mint condition.

    London Comic Mart Dates - 2017

    The list of marts above has been updated - things may get revised again, but the 5th March date has been cancelled, and the April mart is now three weeks later than originally planned, which does at least cut down the gap between that mart and the July one. The 3rd December mart date has been removed, too.
  9. Mike Conroy has now announced the 2017 dates for our marts at the Royal National Hotel; the good news is that we are back to the first Sunday in the month, but, as Mike says, "Please note that we are currently only planning seven marts for next year." April 23rd July 2nd September 3rd October 1st November 5th As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is FREE from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is open for business then.

  10. The 2016 dates have now been announced: January 24th February 21st April 17th - changed from the 10th! May 15th June 19th July 17th September 18th October 16th November 20th As usual, admission to these events at the Royal National Hotel is FREE from noon - "Early Bird Entry" from eleven o'clock costs £5, if you want to snap up some swift bargains... though not every table is open for business then. For 2016 we are avoiding the first Sunday of the month, Mike Conroy tells me, as that does tend to lead to clashes with other Showmasters events that are planned for the year. You may want to check the londoncomicmart.co.uk website for further details, or in case there have to be any last-minute changes. The April date was initially announced as the 12th...the change from the 10th to the 17th is due to "a series of incidents" Mike Conroy says. "We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you. Obviously we do not like making such changes, but in this case circumstances were beyond our control."
  11. Mike Conroy has announced our 2015 dates: March 1 May 3 (includes Comic Empire) June 7 July 5 August 2 September 6 (includes Comic Empire) October 4 November 1 December 6 (includes Comic Empire) So, after a slow start, we go monthly from May, and always on the first Sunday of the month - very handy. As usual, admission to these Sunday events is free, with the doors opening for everyone at the Royal National Hotel at noon - or "Early Bird Entry" for £5 will allow you in an hour earlier, though don't expect every table to be fully ready for business then. You may want to check the londoncomicmart.co.uk website in case any last-minute changes have to be made.
  12. I noticed a couple of recent announcements on Facebook: We are pleased to announce that writer Robin Furth will be signing copies of the first issue of "Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three – The Prisoner" next Sunday, September 21, 2014 at the Mart! and We are also pleased to announce that Artist Lee Garbett will be signing copies of "Marvel’s Original Sin: Thor & Loki – The Tenth Realm collection" at our future Mart on December 7, 2014! So, come along, and don't forget to buy plenty of stuff from our hard-working dealers...

    Whats YOUR opinion on paying for Autographs?

    It seems perfectly reasonable to me to pay a few tens of pounds to get an autograph from one of your favourite stars in a relaxed and friendly convention environment - and it seems fair for such stars to be paid for their time. It must be slightly annoying to sign items until your fingers get cramped outside a movie premiere, knowing that most of the stuff is going to be appearing on ebay a few hours later!
