London Super Comic Con 2015 by Aisha Anime

London Super Comic Con has been the most understated UK convention in my opinion, with its debut in the  2012 - the convention focuses on U.S and European creators, exhibitors, publishers and dealers for comics, merchandise and now cosplay. It was only when cosplay sensation Yaya Han flew to the UK in 2014 to be judge of the Cosplay contest did the convention get a burst of new attendees.

2014 was my first LSCC and I was impressed by the number of comic guests that attended including the creators of The Walking Dead, Johnathan Ross, Yaya Han Riddle's Messy Closet. This year was no less and winners of the last LSCC cosplay contest returned as guests - Nikita and Annashella.

 

This years event had a variety of news things such as the Sy-Fy booth where you could get a 360 degree angle video of you in your cosplay for free! You got the video emailed to yourself and received a Sy-Fy tote bag and goodies including a book, dvd and sweets.

People had to get free tickets in order to see Johnathan Ross self proclaimed geek/otaku who was promoting his new comic book at the event. He happily chatted to his fans, signed items and posed for photos. In the queue with us to see him was Johnny Vegas, comedian and actor who came as an attendee with his son. Amongst Wossy you all had featured guest Sean Kelly alongside co stars from Storage Hunters there signing prints and taking selfies.


The great thing about LSCC was most of the guests were free to get autographs and photos with. There was a cosplay area where Yaya Han, Kamuii Cosplay, Laura Sindell, Tabatha Lyons from Artyfakes, and many more where situated so everything was laid out quite well. The press desk was made into the Daily Bugle building from Super Man - never were props thought out so well.

Normally 'queuing' is link to MCM Comic Con but this tile LFCC took the biscuit! This was because their chief guest was Stan Lee, the man behind Marvel attending for his last appearance in the UK. At the age of 91 everyone was grateful he attended after making his cameo appearance in the Avenger's movie the day before.

Press had access to some promo events on the Friday where the dolarian was driven in an a skit played out by the Doc and Marty from Back to the Future.Later on fantastic Bubblebee robot/cosplay part of the Transformers entourage turned up too on Sunday.

You had Optimus Prime, two Bumblebees and the police car park outside Earl's Court 1 for all spectators to see. Th Police even drove in and requested selfies with the Transformer cars.

Upon entering the venue we had panels with various stars such as Teabag from Prison Break, Dax from Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Colonel from 24, Peter Petrelli from Heroes.

Milo talked about his exit from Heroes and wishes for their success in the new series. then spoke of his projects, one of which is his own digital series and new series directed by Spielberg called 'Whisperers'.

Later Stan 'the Man' Lee came on stage and received a roaring welcome. He proceeded to answer questions from the audience about his favourite cameos in the movie such as Thor and Spiderman. What is more important story of art in comics. He believes you could get away with story in the past but now art is crucial. Lots of questions about Antman flew around too. With dire hearing problems we got lot lots of witty banter from Lee in between translation.

Review: Marvel Knights Collection by Steve Russell

It's difficult to determine who, exactly, this collection is aimed at. Obviously there's the hardcore faithful; those who will purchase anything that has the Marvel logo emblazoned upon it, and now there is that growing audience, the casual fan, that kind of fan that although not incredible knowledgable about any particular hero or their history is a fan of what the character represents over all. This collection, put out under the Marvel Knights logo in itself an branch of Marvel comics that ties now ties into main canon Marvel storylines.
