Another month another comic con. Wait? What? This isn’t a comic convention?  A horror convention?!! Where have you been all my life!?

For one weekend in February Screamvention took over the Red Cow Moran Hotel in Dublin and for those two days February turned into FebruGORY with horror icons flooding in from all over the world to spend some time with their fans!

Wow! It’s been a year already since I first experienced the joyous splendour of Eirtakon. And now there I was, at the doors of Croke Park, press pass in one hand and a notepad in the other, but just like any lively convention that I get the honour of attending I didn’t take many notes this year, nor did I even have the time to look at my phone for the majority of the weekend, why?

So it seems that the MCM London Comic Con was a great success last week showing a massive rise in the number of attendees compared to previous years. In a press release we received it states that the figures just broke over 100,000 con-goers compared to “88,000 people last October and just over 70,000 in May 2013.” (more…)

So Arcade Con 2013 has officially finished and there is a combined sigh of despair from thousands of anime,gaming,sci fi and comic fans around the country with the thought of having to wait another year to feel the atmosphere of this amazing convention.

Now I should point out that this is all my own views and it may differ from others, mainly due to the fact that before this I was a “Con Virgin” and had never been to one before, so this was all an unbiased look at the world of comics, cosplay and anime.
