While there are plenty of great books out this week, CGC towers are all about the FCBD prep this week - The comics have arrived and we are putting the final touches on the event both in Chichester and Winchester.
As ever we are raising charity cash for the local Mind charities and we have some great raffle prizes donated by local businesses and creators to whom which we are very grateful.
Plus we are looking forwards to getting lots of comics into readers' hands! Keep an eye out for more news as the week goes on.
