Milton Keynes Film & Comic Con – Event Report

Wales Comic Con Dec 2018 – Convention Report (aka Queue-Con 2018)

by Phil Wheat

Now in it’s tenth year, Wales Comic Con takes place at Glyndwr University in Wrexham – apparently chosen for its excellent transport links (the university is literally next door to Wrexham railway station) and NOT for it’s compatibility for hosting a comic con! Yes, it’s a case of another convention outgrowing its “local” status, mainly […]

As someone who has attended a myriad of conventions here in the UK for almost a decade - from small local events like Burnley’s Star Wars Fan Fun Day and Chorley’s Stars & Cars, to the big boys like MCM London, Manchester AND Birmingham and Showmaster’s events like the London Film and Comic Con – the article […]

So, it’s been a while since I wrote WWE RAW reviews, but here goes, I’m guessing this is like riding a muscular, spandex-clad bicycle.
