Doctor Who Four Doctors – Exclusive Signed Edition – Neil Edwards & Paul Cornell – Exclusive Sketch by Neil Edwards

Posted on Updated on


A quick peek at one of the items we will be bringing along with us to Southport Comic Con on Saturday 24th February.

Doctor Who Comic Event exclusive – Signed by Neil Edwards / Paul Cornell on 13th January, 2016. Doctor Who 2015 Four Doctors was a Forbidden Planet Exclusive Signed Edition.

It’s the greatest Doctor Who comics crossover event of all time, as the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth incarnations of the Doctor come face to face for the first time ever!

When an unseen enemy maneuvers the three Doctors into an impossible meeting, the future of the universe itself is put at stake. It will take all of the Doctor’s innate cunning and adaptability to team up with his past and present selves to uncover the immensely powerful culprit!

Tickets and information on the event can be found at

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Jack Skellington, A Human Tardis, Harry Potter, Anna and Kristoff with Sven were all seen wandering around Southport on Saturday 16th September. DID YOU SEE THEM? They were helping to Promote Southport Comic Con and Leigh Comic Con.

Posted on Updated on




Our very own Debster from MakeItWorkShop was there as the HumanTardis along with a few eager Cosplayers and helpers.   Don’t they look great.  They were all up bright and early in some of their favourite Cosplays to help promote North West Comic Cons next two amazing events.  Leigh Comic Con which will be Saturday 25th November 2017 and Southport Comic Con on Saturday 24th February 2018.

It was a bit of a chilly start as they all met up at 9am and most of them didn’t have coats ( who wants to cover up an amazing costume) thankfully it didn’t rain.  Southport Air Show was just starting to come to life and the people were slowly arriving.

Everyone was cheerful as the flyers were handed out to passers-by,  which for the lucky first few had sweets attached.  Thankfully the sun came out and it started to warm up.  Passers-by  smiled as they  saw the colourful costumes and many asked for photographs too.

A quick break at McDonalds for a coffee and a do-nut to keep them going and they were off again around Ocean Plaza.  It was smiles all around and no one noticed they had been walking for nearly three hours as it had been so much fun.

They had the pleasure of having a professional photographer to take some photos of the day.  A massive thank you to S A Photography and you can find more of his wonderful work on Facebook, but here are more photographs taken on the day.  Thanks again S A Photography.

For more information on tickets for both events please visit

We are excited to be involved as we will be holding a trade table at Southport Comic Con ourselves and look forward to seeing you all there.
