The term “end of an era” gets tagged onto a number of things these days but with the news that Red Hot Comics & its founder Ivor Davis have parted company…..it’s the only term that seems to hold enough weight to get that message across.

Last weekend (11th-13th July) saw the annual London Film and Comic Con hit – a new con for me to attend but one that had me hyped with the guests in attendance and possibility of a weekend to remember.

Saturday & Sunday saw Glasgow Comic Con kick-off the summer of comics for me and while the sun shone for the whole weekend (minus a few minor downpours that soon dried up) the guests, comics and cosplayers were all in attendance.

The 12th & 13th of April saw Hero Conventions bring us the first (and hopefully not the last) Something Bloody Awesome Comic Con in Edinburgh.

With the flashbacks of last year’s bus journey to London for LSCC, I’m pleased to say that Comics Anonymous, comprising me and our official photographer (My wife Fiona), had the train/hotel organized well in advance. The process for press passes may have become more involved with a formal application but we were lucky enough to receive two for the event and last weekend (15th & 16th March) saw the event kick-off the con calendar in style.
The countdown as on and with just 2 weeks to go :D it’s surely time to start some prep work……or at least take a closer look at what the hell I’m going to take to get signed…….who I’d like to maybe check-in with for a sketch…..and who would be free for an interview…..that’s IF I don’t get way to excited and get lost in comic box somewhere along the way.

It’s about 3 months until London Super Comic Con in March 2014 and I thought I’d take a quick look at who’s been announced for this year’s event……maybe even a quick look at some of the other things I’ll be keeping an eye out for at next year’s event.
