I was very kindly invited along to this years Wales Comic Con by its organizer Jaime Milner. It was my first time in Wrexham and was not quite sure what to expect from the show. It had a good quality guest list and I was able to fit the show into my schedule, so I though 'why not, lets give it a blast.'
I wasnt quite expecting the numbers that did turn up. The queues did not just go around the building, they went around the block, the car park, and as far as the eyes in my skull could see.
It was nice to find that quite a few people came specifically to see me. Which is always a good thing to experience. The sketch requests were varied and at most times quite challenging.
Iron Man vs. Batman, Captain America knocking out Hitlers teeth, Creating Captain Wales or a multitude of Spider-Men. Yet for the 1st time no Optimus Prime!
The one thing I have found lately is that people are requesting me to turn them into their favorite superhero. Or have them battling with their favorite.
It was so busy on the day I could not keep up with demand. Remember folks, First come, First serve! Well done to all those that Pre-Ordered, its the smart move!
Pre-Ordering a Specific request IS the way of the future.
All in, my experience of the show was a really nice friendly atmosphere, great people & extrememly busy.
Now if it had longer opening times that might be better, or may be even Two Days next time Folks?
