St Albans businesses will be joining in the fun at the city’s inaugural Comic Con this weekend.

Chaos City Comics and Rock Pop Candy will have stalls at the Westminster Lodge event, which will be held on Sunday.

They will feature alongside stars of TV and film, including Chris Barrie, who played Rimmer in Red Dwarf, and Julie Dawn Cole, who played Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

In addition, there will be a Han Solo in carbonite statue, an ET bike experience, and The Iron Throne from Game of Thrones. Artists such as Dave Gibbons, who worked on the Watchmen series, and Alan Cowsill, who co-wrote Avengers: The Ultimate Guide to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, will also be at the event, which will run between 10am and 5pm.

There will also be a cosplay zone and gaming zone.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
