Still not sure what a comic-con is and why is’t such fun?

Initially comic-cons used to be events focusing on comic books and comic book culture. However, nowadays comic-cons cover multi-genre entertainment such as films, TV and gaming and have made being ‘geeky’ cool.

A comic-con is a brief escape from reality, where pop culture such as sci-fi, superheroes, zombies and fantasy can be experienced all in one room. You can meet guests from the world of film and TV as well as admire and interact with a range of attractions.

There are geeky traders selling everything from art to collectables, items that you simply will not be able to find on the high street. People of all ages can come along in costume, maybe of their favourite film or comic book character, as it is opportunity to show off your geeky side.
