  1. 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. 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...
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. 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."
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. 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!

  10. Last Post Wins?

    Congratulations to sandman1 for winning... oh, wait...
  11. The website page at http://londoncomicmart.co.uk/ will probably have these dates up by the time you read this - a freesheet at today's event revealed all: 2014: 16th FEBRUARY - changed from a week earlier 30th MARCH 4th MAY 1st JUNE 29th JUNE 20th JULY 21st SEPTEMBER ........................... - 19th October event has been cancelled 16th NOVEMBER 7th DECEMBER As usual, admission to these Sunday events is free, and the doors open at the Royal National Hotel at noon. The 9th February show incorporates the "Comics Empire" event, dedicated to British comics, magazines, pulps, and other interesting items. To avoid the worst of the winter weather we as usual skip January, and take a bit of a break in the height of summer, but otherwise, with a full ten events scheduled, we're looking good...
  12. London Comic Mart Dates - 2013

    Still on, as far as I'm aware, so I'm getting my stuff sorted out ready. Russell Square tube station is pretty convenient; like most tube stations it should have a map in the booking hall, but it's just a matter of turning left out of the station, then turning right (to head north) at the main road, crossing over, and after a few yards you'll see the way into the Royal National Hotel's central courtyard. The hotel entrance you want is on the north side; if you turn up before noon you should see people in the foyer waiting to get into the Galleon Suite, or after noon the open doors will draw you into the, I hope, newly refurbished splendour... :)
  13. The website page londoncomicmart.co.uk has got the dates for 2013 up, now changed from the original listing: 2013: 3rd FEB 3rd MARCH 7th APRIL 5th MAY 2rd JUNE 4th AUG -- now CANCELLED due to the hotel deciding to get the decorators in 15th SEPT - two weeks later than previously scheduled, to avoid clashing with another event 20th OCT - also two weeks later than previously announced, to avoid another clash 3rd NOV 1st DEC Let's hope the refurbishment of the Galleon Suite doesn't take too long, but it leaves us with quite a gap this summer...
  14. I'm glad to see that the listing on the website has been updated, even if the first post in this thread is, thus far, unchanged. So it's confirmed that our April date is Sunday 29th - to turn up at the Royal National Hotel on April 1st would be, um, foolish...
  15. I see you are still displaying the 2012 dates online for the London Comic Marts as: 2012 Sunday 5th February Sunday 4th March Sunday 1st April Sunday 20th May Sunday 10th June Sunday 15th July Sunday 2nd September However, the freesheet given out today at the mart was different: Sunday 5th February Sunday 4th March Sunday 29th April Sunday 10th June Sunday 15th July Sunday 2nd September Sunday 7th October Sunday 4th November Sunday 2nd December Getting the final three dates for the year is good, but scrapping the 1st April and 20th May ones in favour of a single date in between does complicate matters...
