We’ve had our fair share of comic events this year, but none are as special as the one that helped sow the seeds of Comics Anonymous. As our first outing as a group, Gary tells us why KAPOW! 2011 was one never to forget.
2011 saw my first foray into the world of the comic book convention and the wave of hype saw me land at the doors of Kapow! Comic Con in London with some of my best friends in the world. A geek-fest that saw us queue for hours, almost pee our pants with excitement and talk face-to-face with some of the GREATS from the comic book world. Taking place in early April…..the sunny days and warm nights blurred with Cosplay die-hards and first time fans alike. Bringing with it some top talent and panels featuring the likes of Mark Millar, John Romita Jr., Andy Diggle, Jock, Dave Gibbons, to name but a few. A special Marvel panel which got us a pat-down and our mobiles taken from us as we got an exclusive glimpse of Thor… almost 20 minutes of previously unseen footage would cause the crowd to whoop and cheer en-mass as the excitement spread like a bad case of the flu. If you can get to the con in 2012 – which promises to be bigger than this year’s – and with tickets selling faster than a speeding bullet –then do it. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD – DO IT!!!!
See you there!
