Beano artists Nigel Parkinson & Nika Nartova @ Wow Comix Stockport! – Gallery


It was so great to see so many different generations of Beano fans at the weekend! A fabulous turnout and very refreshing to see just how many British comic fans we have around the area! We hope you all had a great time meeting the legends that are Nigel and Nika, what better way to celebrate the 70th birthday year of the Beano eh?!

We didn’t take many, but you can find a few photos from the event below!

If you couldn’t find the time to get down to Stockport for this event then do not fear, you can find Nigel and Nika back with Wow Comix for another signing session at our store in Stretford Mall on the 4th of December! – https://www.facebook.com/Wow-Comix-Stretford-Mall-105219951801142 – Keep an eye out for further info!
