~~ NEW YORK COMIC CON LIVE REPORT & PREVIEW: LAKES INTERNATIONAL COMIC ARTS FESTIVAL – Interview with JULIE TAIT, Festival Organiser ~~

New York Comic Con has been in full swing all weekend and, following our interview with ReedPOP‘s Event Director Mike Armstrong, we’ll be checking in to see how their plans have become reality with a live report from FoCC’s Alyssa Franks, direct6 from the show floor. We may also get a few surprise guests making an appearance, too…

We’re also looking forward to one of the most exciting events lined up in the world’s convention calendar – The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival, which AEISD Leonard Sultana will be attending. Not exactly on the same scale at NYCC, sure, but attracting some incredible names itself.

Talking to us to explain why this Festival – in only its fourth year – has become such a staple of the UK fixtures, is organiser Julie Tait. We’ll be chatting to Julie about the challenges of putting on such a complex event with so many moving parts around the city of Kendal, about the highlights and lows of organising the event, and what headlines make up this years Festival.


TALKIN’ COMIC-CON: A CUP O’ TEA WITH AN ENGLISHMAN IN SAN DIEGO is the weekly San Diego Comic-Con and con culture live podcast, broadcasting every Sunday (6pm GMT / 10am PT / 1pm ET) and hosted by Leonard Sultana, joined by Alyssa Franks.

Each week, the best bloggers on t’web talk about San Diego Comic-Con, about con & pop culture and, for an hour or so, we invite guests to talk to us and get nerdy and geeky about everything that orbits the Best Pop Culture Convention On The Planet!

YOU can watch and interact online, either by Twitter (tweeting with the hashtag #CupOTeaSDCC) or via the Hangout Event Q&A. Schedules permitting, Leonard will be joined by guests from the SDCC blogging community and some surprises!

Our Guests, this week:

  • Alyssa Franks, Friends Of Comic Con Forum
  • Julie Tait, Lakes International Comic Arts Festival
  • …more amazing guests to be confirmed!
