Russell says - "Don't miss this year's NICE con (Northants International Comic Expo) on the 7th and 8th September 2013 at the Bedford Corn Exchange. I went last year it proved to be the best con to be at if you want to actually meet a really quality lineup of artists and writers, and this year they have just as impressive a guest list - Garth Ennis, Alan Davis, Mark Farmer, Guera, Simon Bisley, Glenn Fabry, John Watson and loads of others. Miss it and miss out.
