So, you may or may not know that the entire iReekofGeek team are heading to the small village of London for its annual Comiccon. All of them that is, except ME! I know, right?
So instead of feeling left out and getting jealous about my geeky buddies having the time of their lives, I decided that the time was right to go to Wales Comiccon instead. The Welsh Comiccon is not as widely known as it’s bigger city brothers but it promises to provide enough Sci-Fi, TV and film to send any geek into a nerd coma.
The venue this year being held ay Glyndwr University in Wrexham on the 26th April, this huge venue will play host to some familiar sci-fi faces as well as some TV favourites. The last updated list of famous faces include the likes of Ben Miller, Eve Myles, Nicholas Brendon, Jason Flemyng, ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan, Dave Prowse and Chris Barrie to name but a few. There a fair few faces from the world of Game of Thrones this year with some faces (and bodies) you may and may not recognize. But I will leave that for you to decide.
Alongside the star studded line up will be Artists and writers from various different comic book universe. (Spiderman, Transformers, Avengers and Doctor Who + more) so take along your fave comic or book, you MIGHT just get it signed. (For a small fee of course)
As with all comic conventions, you are likely to see troupes of people taking part in cosplay competitions as well as just dressing for the Hell of it. Wales Comiccon hosts the Cosplay Masquerade which welcomes Cosplayers, amateur and pro alike to don their hero’s attire for the day. Will I be dressing up as my fave comic character? Probably not but will do my best to get you the best pics of the people who are.
