My parents now live in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Not too much happens there, and that's pretty much the way they like it. And there's a train to London so they can see the grandkids. I was up there this past Sunday. Not much was happening. Even the comic shop was closed.
It won't be closed on Saturday, April 5th at 2pm. Because that's when TV broadcaster, presenter and comedian Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill are turning up at Comic Connections above a poundstore, to sign copies of Revenge, their new comic book published by Image Comics.
Banbury won't know what's hit it. Their biggest brush with fame is John Craven living nearby. And rockstar paedophile Gary Glitter was born there. That's about it.
The first issue of Revenge is out next week, and Forbidden Planet of London are also doing a signing on the 1st of March. But I can't pop by my folks for a cuppa afterwards, can I?
I might try and pop by Banbury again…
