From 1986: the cover of the programme for the 1986 BIRMINGHAM COMIC ART SHOW.

I wasn't at the event, held 31 May and 1 June (indeed it would be way over a decade longer before I visited Brun for the first time) and picked this A5 black & white booklet up, for a few pennies, much more recently. 

Cover art, which (I think) also graced the advertising for the event (because the whole thing looks familiar from fanzine ads from the time) by Mike Higgs. 

Check out the stellar line-up of creative types who attended...and the low (it feels today) admission price. For context a UK weekly was selling for around 35p and an imported US monthly for under a pound. Give or take.
