It seems like there will be no more UK Web & Mini Comix Thing events. A post on the website ukwebcomixthing.co.uk by organiser Patrick Findlay says:
There will be no more Things as the hall is no longer available for hire and my brain is fried. There are some options for using other venues but I think its probably best to call it a day. If I change my mind i'll let you know.
The Thing has been running for seven years and this years event was covered by regular Thing attendee Jamie Warr for SPBM, who also brought this sad news to our attention.
