London's Comiket Cancelled For November, Will Reschedule In 2015

Only last evening we were being told that,

But today it all changed.

 And the site updated. comiketart of the Comica comics arts festival in London, and hot on the heels of the British Library exhibition, Comiket is a small comics press event with lots of publishers and creators, events and exhibitions around it. Indeed, it has become quite a focal point, especially for the newly emerging British graphic novel publishers such as Self Made Hero, Blank Slate, Nobrow and Soaring Penguin alongside such mainstays as Knockabout. For many it is the key moment of Comics and many creator plan their new releases around the next Comica event. So to be postponed until next year a week away from the show was quite a blow.  

 

 

Well, yes, lots of people will have. Advance train tickets cost a lot more than ones booked on the week.

Reference to the famous Dashcon non-con there…

As to why? No answers are forthcoming, but having the Lakes Comic Art Festival last weekend, London's MCM's extended comics village this weekend, with Thought Bubblein LEeeds in a couple of weeks may be stretching the small and self publisher a little thinly perhaps?
