Anyone who’s known me for a while will know that I am a relatively frequent attendee at MCM’s London Comic Con and Summer’s Hyper Japan. I’ve been attending Comic Con at least once a year since 2015 and Hyper Japan even longer. Although I wouldn’t call myself a veteran, it would be safe to say that I know what it’s like to be stuck in a building with 50,000 other people, including multiple Deadpools and Hatsune Mikus.
I was actually supposed to post a ‘Con Survival Guide’ I’ve had collecting dust in my notes for a while, but, to be honest, after my experience yesterday, I’m really not in the mood to be recommending anything along these lines.
So, one of the main reasons I go to Comic Con these days is actually for the comics, artists and authors, rather than the fan meets (that have long abandoned, for a few reasons) and, to start with the positives, let’s take a look at the stuff I got.
