We’re just recovering from the weekend and coming to terms with having to be back to work today, but here’s Gary and Craig’s look back at what the second day of the Glasgow Comic Con had to offer. Make sure to check our Day 1 coverage too, since there’s loads of revealing bits from Mr Grant Morrison about his upcoming Multiversity series in there too.

Here at Comics Anonymous we travel round the country throughout the year to get our fix of comic conventions – so it makes a nice change to be able to roll out of bed on a Saturday morning and only spend 20 minutes in the car getting to this weekend’s Glasgow Comic Con. It also means that after a long day of conning, posts like these can be done from the comfort of your own sofa, and not holed up in a hotel room – bliss! Here are Craig and Gary’s views on Day 1.
Kapow 2012 had a lot to offer those in attendance with signings, stalls, artist alley, movie previews and screening – but it was the comics panels that Comics Anonymous were most interested in. With many big name panellists and some interesting announcements, here’s a run-down of what was on offer over the weekend.

Comics Anonymous is just back from this year’s Kapow! – here is a rundown of the weekend by Linsay and Craig.
In a bid to attend every comic event known to man, Comics Anonymous visited the recent Hi-Ex! comics expo in Inverness. For a while now, many of the people we’ve spoken to on our travels have said that Hi-Ex! is one of the best cons of the UK calendar – so we figured we’d try it out for ourselves. Here’s Craig and Gary’s take on the weekend.

Last month, the Comics Anon team left their cold and windy hometown of Glasgow and ventured down south to the much sunnier city of London for our first Comic Con of the year – London Super Comic Con. With this being its first year in existence we were a little apprehensive about how the weekend would be, but most of those doubts were put to rest by the end of it. With a big venue, a big crowd and a big guest, it was definitely an experience the gang won’t forget. (Apologies it’s a little late – we had a few technical difficulties!) Here’s what Craig and Gary thought about the weekend.
After the success of our Paul Cornell competition a few weeks back, we’re back with another chance to get your hands on some signed comics, this time of the Mark Millar kind.

On a freezing cold and yet strangely sunny day, Team Comics Anonymous made the impressive trek from Glasgow to Dundee for the 5th Annual Dundee Literary Festival Comics Day event organised by Dr Chris Murray. Chris is also behind the new Mlitt in Comic Studies currently running for postgraduate students at Dundee University. Held in the Tower building of the University we were treated to an exhibition of cover and interior art from old Commando’s and other war comics.

In a post-Schism world, the X-men are now divided into two teams, Gold and Blue, and so are the comics with 4 issues for each team. Wolverine and the X-Men is one of the first that makes up the new Gold team, as Wolvie takes on the role of Xavier and starts a new school for higher learning.
