On Thursday I am taking a train ride north of the border into Scotland. I did this same trip last year and got to experience the joy that is the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
For those unaware of what the Edinburgh Fringe is it is one of the biggest arts festivals in the world. It is mainly known for comedy (although drama, kid’s shows and various experimental art pieces all come into it) and I have to say it is something I heartily recommend to anyone who loves a good laugh as I saw pretty much every type of comedy show you could ask for (ranging from a varied range of standups to a musical based on the work of Richard Dawkins!)
This year there is a twist. Like last year we will be promoting ourselves at the Fringe (big thanks Leap Magazine, James Turner’s The Astronomic and Develop Web Design). However the big difference is this year I am performing as part of Beast of the East, a show organised by UEA Headlights president Luis Forte and featuring a mixture of standup and sketches showcasing the fab talents of Ellie Overoode, Charlie Tarran, Neal Goldsmith and Scott Mills (not the DJ).
If you are in Edinburgh you can see our show at the Phoenix at 12 noon from 13-17th August. It’s a free show so all you need to do is come and have a look and put a coin in the bucket if you enjoyed it (we’re in the program)!
However Reynard City continues to be working even with me away from my computer. Our team has been beavering away on upcoming issues, the cartoon project (an animated sample coming soon) , the video game and another big project that will be the subject of our second kickstarter (more news soon). Also keep an eye on Deviantart for Issue 21 pages!
We will also be overhauling the merchandise page soon with some fab new things to sell. Remember as well as supporting our project with each sale we will donate to the Big C, a local cancer charity. This also applies to donations to our comic fund www.reynardcity.com/donate
Finally big thanks to everyone who has recently shared our comic. There’s not room to list all the names but regular Twitter/Facebook people Comicvixen, elblondino, Saranga Comics, the comedy legends that are Trev and Simon, Former Norwich City goal hitman Leon McKenzie, THE Cat Danny John Jules, Vinnie Vampire, Caost, Ed Couzens Lake, Birds of Prey writer Gail Simone, Norwich Kitty, Girls Read Comics and of course the tireless efforts of Twitter promo queen ReynardComics have all been of massive assistance.
Please keep up the good work, your support means a lot to us :)
