After the success of our inaugural Demoncon comic and gaming convention we realised we needed to follow up the success with another event as soon as possible. As the gaming side of things had garnered less interest during the first evnt we decided to focus Demoncon2 just on comics, asking (or is that harrassing) as many artists and writers to attend as we could cram into the venue without it bursting. ‘Food outlet explodes from over stuffing of illustrators’, would make a somewhat bizarre headline in the KM. With the guest list numbers settled at 16 it was good that on this occasion I had two capable pairs of hands to hand over the organisation of the event to being as the last time I’d nearly suffered a total meltdown. Jon Rapley and Nicholas Lawrence took over the running of the event on the day and couldn’t have done a better job. Table plans were drawn up, guests were ‘meeted and greeted’, furniture was relocated and raffle prizes were acquired. All that was left for me to do was enjoy the day with my children, which this time, unlike at the first event I was able to do as I was able to relax and as the poster given to me by guest, Tony Lee, says, ‘Stay Calm and Read Comics’.
