But when it comes to Ed's dedication, the weather, the cold, the wind and the rain are no barriers. He has gloves, a thick jacket, a hat and a chair. And a spare chair.
And he will be waiting through the night to be the first in line when the doors to Thought Bubble, Britain's best comic convention, open tomorrow morning.
And, as he tells me, he'll guarantee to pick up all the exclusive and limited posters, prints and comics on his list. Mondo will be his first stop…
After that? He'll wander around and see what else he fancies.
But if you are outside the Royal Armouries in Leeds tonight why not stop by? Maybe bring some soup?
Good luck Ed. Hope you and Abigail get on….
You know, doing this in San Diego is so much nicer.
