In association with the fabulous Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle's super-swish indie cinema supreme, the first Canny Comic Con kicked off with an official launch event on the Friday night (9th December 2011). And what better way to do this than with a drink and draw film night!
It was a chance for comic artists of all calibres to turn up with a sketchpad for some socialising and doodling from 7pm till 11pm to launch the weekend. As a special treat, there was a showing of Howard the Duck in the bar - a rare chance to catch this (ahem) classic on a big screen with other comic fans!
It was a great shindig, and some crazy fun stuff got drawn! Many thanks to the Tyneside Cinema.
