UKCAC diary the next

Inspired by the efforts of some of my friends, I decided to attack one of the huge sliding piles of comics. UKCAC diary page 2It took half a pile for the sheer force of stuff! to halt any attempt at sorting. Look, here's the stuff NAMBLA sent us -- old Deadlines with summer-turquoise covers, that weird comic about Lt. Uhura getting really into body-building and, er, other stuff. What's this? Dangerous Hobbits? Zinesters were so ahead of the wave... Without any further ado, back to 1998, when Jenni had plans for Caption all the way up to 2001, and her eye on (interviewing) Joe Sacco ...

not caption, but caption
Didn't you end up reporting the conversation either for Caption (The Zine) or BAPA? I thought I remembered you taking notes, I suppose I could be wrong about that (as I was already in the drunken haze I'd spend the rest of the convention in).

Re: not caption, but caption
I might have written something for somewhere, but not terribly officially. I wasn't in the best of moods and I was staying with my brother, so was slightly torn between comics & socialising with family. I seem to recall I did have my eye on Sacco for more than one reason but abruptly switched into a different mode at about 9 pm before I even got loads of heavy drinking in, and went off to hang out with my brother instead.

This was in the first year or so after I'd split up with Andy, if I recall rightly, and I wasn't always terribly settled.

... that weird place, the sudden shock of discovering it was the last one ...
