The Establishing Shot: London's biggest Comic Fair

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Thursday, March 18, 2010

This is the post in which I reveal London's best kept comic secret - The National Collectors Marketplace, with 130 tables, is the largest regular marketplace for comic book and trading card collectors in the U.K. You will also find a whole range of related materials including Sci-fi, Fantasy, Film, TV and Toys from leading National & International dealers. A refreshments counter, bar and pub will be open next to the venue.

I have to say my first visit to The National Collectors Marketplace blew my mind. It's a little bit musty but I was like a kid visiting Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. The fair is made up of a number of sellers each with their own speciality items. Visiting each stall revealed a greater treasure from my childhood or item of desire. There are 130 TABLES of:

2000 Ad
Action Figures
British Annuals
British Comics
Comic Book Supplies
Cult Dvd
Doctor Who
Gaming Cards
Golden Age Comics
Graphic Novels
Latest Import Comics
Newspaper Strips
Non-sports Cards
Original Artwork
Sci Fi/Fantasy
Silver Age Comics
Sports Cards
Star Trek
Star Wars
Trading Card Supplies

If you get a chance I recommend at least one visit.
