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.

It’s just a few days until the Glasgow Comic Con on the 5th & 6th of July and their’s no better way to truly start the summer than in the midst of a con that’s built up a significant following in it’s last few years, stretched to a 2-day event and now spread it’s guests, panels & dealers across three venues……a local highlight of my year and one that I’m hoping continues to go from strength to strength.

Last weekend 13th & 14th July brought two of the sunniest days so far and with some venturing to T in the Park’s 20th year……some of us were more content to stay closer to home and take in Glasgow’s Annual Comic Con, now in its third year.

Who knew that a year could flash passed so quickly and with the hyped memories of last years LSCC still fresh it was a lessened attendance from the Comic Anon gang with just me (G-Man) making the journey down to our capital for this years show. Post bus journey BUT post-hotel upgrade…..I was all set for this years event.

Released just this week and with a nod of approval from Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner the Comics Anonymous group were pretty psyched for a fresh new take on Mega City One’s most famous resident.

Let’s set a comic book in Glasgow, it’s about an escaped mental patient who thinks he’s Humphrey Bogart…..and he’s acting out an entire case in his head based on the movies of Bogie himself. Sounds crazy…..it IS crazy…..but it’s one of the most involving and interesting comics I think I’ve ever read.

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.
