Another sign that something resembling normalcy is on the horizon is the scheduling of public events. Like barbecues, weddings, ComicCons...

With everything in flux, nothing is set in concrete, of course. But if this happens, Dirk will be there both days. So, who's going?

Me, hopefully! Thanks John! Got a show in Northampton on the Sunday evening but it’s only about an hour and a half away so should work out well!

Oh very nice! I haven't been to Wales. Yet. If I can, I'd love to be there (and catch your show on Sunday, Elaine). Something to look forward to ...

OK, untill October 2021 we can travel from EU to UK. After that we will need a passport!

That's good to know! Thanks, Wim.
Let's keep our fingers crossed that the health situation will improve by then so we can all go.

OK - getting things updated - check the most recent posts for other news - but the Wales Comic Con has been postponed due to the Covid situation in the UK. It's every bit as nasty as the situation in the US...

I am following the Wales Comic Con social media, so I'll let you know as soon as new dates have been established. Hopefully, they won't conflict with any prior commitments...

Well, the latest news about this event isn't good. As you probably know, it was postponed into November (I don't know why I didn't get that info up here), and we have been waiting for confirmation that Dirk would appear. We didn't hear anything for the longest time...


Neither did Dirk. Through some communication failure, I suppose, the date change was never confirmed with him (still hasn't been, actually).

So at this point, we have to assume he will not be at this event - which is not what we were hoping for (and the reason we never took this off of our list).

Sorry to be the bearer of sad tidings, but I don't want to give any false hopes, either.

Thanks for the update John. Hopefully something can be worked out for next year. Would be a nightmare to travel right now with all the rules/restrictions.
