It’s now been nearly two weeks since the annual Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival & it’s 2-day convention and I figured I’d let all my thoughts sink in about it before trying to sum up how my weekend went at the event…..
This year’s London Super Comic Convention just hit the Con calendar and with the time of year, venue and number of days all changing there were a lot of moving parts for the 6th year of the event.
The first weekend in September (3rd & 4th) saw the NICE Comic Con hit it’s fifth year and the third year I’ve attended, but with a constantly impressive guest list & relaxed vibe to the two day event it’s no wonder it’s one that I go back to time and again.
Last weekend saw the 3rd Edinburgh Comic Con take place in it’s new surroundings with the hope of being just as successful as last year…..if not moreso.
Just a couple of weeks ago the fifth London Super Comic Convention took place in the familiar surroundings of London’s Excel Centre and as usual it marks the start of my Con-going for the year.
Last weekend saw the NICE Comic Convention hit it’s fourth year and marked my second trip to sunny Bedford for a con that nestles in the calendar of events as a hidden gem so far……but that’s surely going to change as more people catch on to what this event offers.
What a difference a year makes with a change of name from Something Bloody Awesome to Edinburgh Comic Con initially being the only obvious tweak to the event – same venue, same time of year and a similar caliber of guest but this year’s took it up a notch…..and then some.
I recently attended London Super Comic Con which has quickly become one of the most regular entries in my calender for the year as it kicks off the Con season for me since it started back in 2012. It has improved each year as 2013 & 2014 built on the success bringing an impressive roster of guests coupled with a firm focus on the indie comics from around the country and so much more.
