Scribblers Comic Group

Aside from our yearly comic con, we also run a monthly group for anyone who is into comics – be it drawing them, writing them, or reading them.

This is a family-friendly group in the heart of Todmorden, that’s free to attend and open to enthusiasts of all styles of comics and comic art.

Upcoming dates and times are posted on our Twitter and Facebook.


November meeting

The next Calder Valley Scribblers meet will be Sunday November 20th 2016

2-4pm at the Golden Lion* in Todmorden.

Yes please do note that we now meet at the Golden Lion! We did enjoy meeting at Kava but our group became too big for that space, alas.

But the Golden Lion is awesome, and is also where we hold our yearly comic con, Scribblecon. We’ll be meeting in the wooden room which is the room at the side. If this is your first time there, just ask at the bar and they will direct you.

Feel free to bring sketchbooks, comics, pens etc. All are welcome, including kids (it is a pub but we are mostly tea drinkers). Free entry, just turn up!

Applying for Thought Bubble!

UPDATE! We WILL be going to Thought Bubble!

We were also delighted to hear that local comic artist Rachael Smith is also going, but then that didn’t come as a surprise 🙂

Do come and say hi!

So! A few of us are applying for a couple of tables at this year’s Thought Bubble comic art festival in Leeds. While Chris Browning has exhibited there twice before, it’s all shiny and new for the rest of us. Fun challenge #1 Put our respective works onto a few pieces of A4.

March 2016 Scribblers meet


The next Scribblers meeting will be this coming Sunday, March 13th. As usual, from 2-4pm at Káva in Todmorden. This is free to attend, as it’s just a bunch of artists, writers and comics enthusiasts sitting around doodling, chatting, reading and drinking tea and stuff. Kids are always welcome.

We’ll probably also be discussing Scribblecon, our upcoming comic-con which is now official! Mark your calendars for May 28th at the Golden Lion (also in Todmorden).

(Chris Browning from The Common Swings took a day off from making his excellent poster cats, so in this month’s flyer we feature the cat Mizzle, drawn by local comic artist Cat Byrne)
