London Super Comic Con Fun Filled Weekend!
With the doors well and truly closed on this year’s London Super Comic Con, it’s time to sit back and reflect on how this year’s event compares to last years.
First thing to mention is, of course, the change of location from the London Excel to Islington’s business and design centre a much smaller venue than the much larger Excel but also much more intimate in ways making for a very warm and friendly environment and just as easy to get too with Angel tube station only a five minute walk away.
Of course the other thing of major note was the change of date with the London Super Comic Con usually being held in February and for me the change of date rather than the change of location may have had a slight effect on numbers due to not only it being the August bank holiday weekend but you also had the Notting Hill Carnival taking place and it was well after noon before I really noticed the place filling up
But enough of the nit-picking as this was still a great event with many fantastic guests Brian Michael Bendis, Dan Slott, Jae Lee, Dave Gibbons, Mikka Andolfo, Sabine Rich, Ian Richardson, Erica Schultz to name a few, with the event itself being divided between in three areas, the main hall comprising of mostly dealer tables which allowed for buying that almost obligatory comic con memento, nest level up you had artists ally and panel rooms all of which were in good use especially artist ally which at times had ques of eager fans waiting to get there comics signed or pick up a new piece of artwork.
Of course, no comic con is complete these days without cosplayers and London Super Comic Con is no different with a plethora of your usual favourites Wonder Woman, Spider Man, Harley Quinn and much more doing the rounds, all adding a touch of colour and fun to the event
Overall this year’s LSCC pretty damn good if somewhat a bit off whether this due to the change in venue or the bank holiday weekend I am not sure but it definitely felt like it took its time to get going but once it did I never really stopped and still a not to be missed event for comic lovers all over
A truly fun weekend out for all the family
