Segment 1: Dublin Eight Comic Arts Festival

The first Dublin Eight Comic Arts Festival happened on 23rd April. DECAF for short, was a event in The Fumbally Stables to promote, buy and how to do independent small press comic books. Think more illustrated novel rather than superhero saga, though there are a few caped crusaders around as well. I checked out some of the works that were lined up and asked the authors back to back to tell me what they were selling.
