MCM London Comic Con Review 2016

London’s MCM Comic Con is by far of the UK’s biggest comic cons, attracting cosplayers and fans from all around. This was my third time visiting the Excel centre for the con and the first time going on a Friday. I have to say, as with most cons with a three day weekend, visiting on a Friday will usually mean a few things. 1) It’s usually less crowded so cosplayers tend to where t...[Read More]

Fan Fest 2016 Review

As most folks know in Arizona, Phoenix Comicon is by far the greatest comic book convention every year. It made many con goers sad when it’s time came and went then we had nothing but 12 long months to wait before the next event. However, when Fan Fest rolled out a few years ago, this changed! It was originally held in the harsh Arizona winter where geeks would travel through clear roads, su...[Read More]

Review: Saboten 2016

Last year I got to attend Saboten for the first time ever. Prior to that convention, I had heard wonderful tales about how much fun everyone always had and when I went myself, the stories rang true! You can read last year’s review of Saboten here! While I did have a great time, my biggest complaints were in regards to food and vendor hall size. Had they fixed just one of those two issues eve...[Read More]

Review: Game On Expo 2016

Review: Game On Expo 2016 Game On Expo held in the Mesa, Arizona Convention Center is one of my all time favorite conventions in the valley. While it may not be the largest convention in our sunny state, it has charm with it’s focus on all things video games which is a great break up from the typical comic book and anime conventions. Last year we had the chance to go to it’s first ever...[Read More]

London Anime and Gaming Con Review 2016

London Anime and Gaming Con Review 2016 When I first saw this Con being advertised on my Facebook page, I was a little hesitant as to whether I should apply.

Review: Wondercon 2016 2016 was the first time I got to go to WonderCon located in Los Angeles at the convention center.
