Dublin Comic Con The Year of Wonder Woman
Dublin Comic Con, as it has been for the past few years was just amazing, with the queues to get in not taking as long as other years, which is always a good start to any comic con.
Held once again at the splendid Dublin Convention Centre and within easy reach of the Luas transport system, makes this an ideal location for these types of events. Once inside you are immediately transported into the magical world of Comic Cons with a plethora of Cosplayers everywhere you look – Batman, Harley Quinn, The Joker, and of course Wonder Woman which seemed to be extremely popular this year, no doubt DC’s hit Wonder Woman movie having a big influences at this year’s con.
The guest line once again had a very nice mix from the TV and Comic worlds with Michael Rosenbaum, Kevin Conroy, John Wesley Shipp, Marina Sirtis and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson aka the Mountain from Game of Thrones to name just a few attending this year’s event.
And while the guests are definitely a big favourite with con goers, there is so much more going on at Dublin Comic Con with plenty of interactive sets such as a Zombie Plagueland or possibly if you are more the gamer type and would have preferred world of Skyrim which ever is your choice these sets look pretty damn good for photo opportunities.
But that’s not all, Dublin Comic Con 2017 had to offer there was some amazing artwork available from the dozens of artist’s tables or if you enjoy your gaming then Game Zone had some great workshops going on from Pulse College and of course you had a massive array of vendors selling everything from comics memorabilia to Japanese treats, an area I have to say I spent a lot of time.
So how did this year’s event compare to previous years for me it just gets better and better, it’s such a friendly convention even with the large crowds you never really feel under pressure or hassled making it an ideal family fun day out,
Personal highlights for me of course getting to see Odin and Thor, two of the original Dire Wolves from Game of Thrones they were just so amazingly cute, taking all the attention they were getting in their stride and meeting so many fantastic Cosplayers and marvelling at how much the level of cosplay has really increased over the years some of the costumes were just outstanding.
All in all this year’s event was equally as good as last years if not better and for just €20 it packs a huge amount of entertainment in to one day making an event not to be missed
