Thanks to all the creators, many of whom travelled great distance to be there.
Thanks to everyone who delivered the brilliant talks/workshop/panels.
Thanks to the 99th Garrison for keeping the event safe from those pesky rebels (and posing for photos and collecting for our charities).
Thanks for the donations of comics - and then money for the comics - at the charity table.
(We reached a total of £149.49 that will go to the Lord Mayor's nominated charities.)
Thanks to the Jen and all the library staff for giving Canny a home.
And thanks to everyone who came and bought comics, drew stuff, attended the events, I hope you had fun.

Without all of the above, the Canny Comic Con wouldn't be.


As ever, it'll probably return.
