33 salon internacional del comic de barcelona

Part of a 4 day convention, 33 salon internacional del comic de Barcelona is my first venture into a non UK event for geeks, fans and nerds of all description. I've taken a well deserved break from work to attend and will be spending a week in the beautiful city of Barcelona, the majority of which will be in and around the area the convention is being held. Having come to Spain with my spanish more than a little rusty I can honestly say there was a language barrier. Luckily there were more than a few who spoke either perfect english or a broken form of it which just goes to show we English have a lot of catching up to do in terms of language in comparison to our Eurpoean brothers and sisters. I managed to find out that ...

MCM Comic Con Birmingham

A few weeks ago I attended MCM Birmingham Comic Con which took place from 21st - 22nd March 2015. You can read my round up of events on Flicks & the City including the cosplay, the talks and Robots Live! As well as enjoying the atmosphere of the convention and purchasing one or two items I was also lucky enough to get to interview Tyler James Williams and Christian Serratos as well as Neil Jackson. The sound was not as great as I would have hoped it would be having had to record on a tablet so I've written up the highlights of the interview: http://flicksandthecity.com/birmingham-mcm-comic-con-2015-interview-highlights/ However I also got permission to load the videos in full up to my personal YouTube account. Have a watch let know what you think! Neil Jackson Interview Tyler James Williams ...

This post will be a list of the top 5 cosplays from MCM Birmingham. I meant to do this earlier in the week but work got in the way, then the plan was to do it Saturday...however I didn't plan for a hangover, malfunctioning/broken phone and to still be shivering from my dip in Birmingham's canal Friday night. That was fun. No seriously it was once I got over the whole near death experience side of it. So now that I sorted out a new phone and got over the hangover which actually wasn't that bad I can get on with this. If you've been following my page's Facebook feed you will have seen me share Solid Edge Media's cosplay video of the event who I was lucky enough to be next to when they were filming the ...

MCM Birmingham

Over the summer as you probably know if you've been reading my blog, I took the opportunity to go to LFCC and it was epic. So when I saw that MCM Birmingham Comic Con was happening in November I thought I would try and apply for a press pass so I could afford it as I was already running a little low on funds post LFCC. As luck would have it I was awarded with one which I can probably thank being dedicated to posting this past year. So over this week I'll be doing 2-3 blog posts on MCM Birmingham and what I saw while I was there this Saturday starting with this one where I will be comparing it to LFCC from this summer. What is MCM Birmingham Comic Con? MCM Birmingham Comic Con is one of a ...
