It’s been a few weeks since I got back from the 32nd MCM London Comic Con, which took place during the last week of October and was the second show of 2017 at the Excel Center.
I have attend MCM about 5 times now, this being my sixth, and I have to say this was probably the most enjoyment I’ve experienced at the show. The event itself was spread across three days which featured so many cool things such as UK exclusive collectibles, celebrity guests, a shit ton of superheroes, panels, photo ops with guests, thousands of fans, games, comic books and anime/manga enthusiasts.

So if any of you follow my social media channels, you’ll know that I have taken part and entered the Rick and Morty Design Contest on For Fans By Fans. I’m been pouring a lot of time and effort into my illustration work lately and I wanted to enter this just to prove to myself that I can draw something related to a brief.
It was a lot of fun when coming up with my design as my imagination just kind of run wild and my final design wasn’t even the one I was going to submit. I’m a massive fan of Rick and Morty just purely because it is so out there and definitely goes against the norm. The creators of the show had a brilliant concept for it and their imagination runs wild, if you’ve seen the show then you know what I’m talking about! I just decided to think of a design that really portrays the characters traits and I think I managed to succeed with this in my final submission.

I’m on the home stretch now!
Here’s my coverage of the third and final day of London Film and Comic Con 2017, as I sit here I’m reliving the memories of the show and thinking just how lucky and fortunate I was to have such an incredible experience meeting these guests!
Well here we go, my coverage of the final day of LFCC 2017!
After having two pretty epic days at this convention, I had now sadly came to the third and final day. At this stage I was feeling pretty exhausted from the busy two days, combining the lack of food and sleep I felt like I was on my last legs! Nonetheless I was looking forward to meeting the last few guests on my list and getting my last photo ops to complete the weekend. Like I did on the first two days, as soon as I got into the convention center I bombed it upstairs to the guest floor to get my VQ tickets for Michael Rosenbaum, Kevin Smith, Alyson Hannigan and Natalie Dormer. I managed to score some pretty low numbers so already I was off to a great start for the final day.

Holy shit, the time is almost upon us!
Since San Diego Comic Con 2017, we have been getting a lot of activity surrounding Netflix’s upcoming Marvel project “The Defenders”, which is something I have been so stoked for and can’t wait to see this show! The idea of seeing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all on screen together, as a fan, is going to be something pretty epic and awesome. Ever since I knew that Netflix would be making a series of Marvel shows, straight away I was thinking that The Defenders must be on the table and I’m so glad this is what they’ve been working towards!

Okay here we go, here’s my coverage of London Film and Comic Con 2017 day 2! The first day was pretty epic and I was already buzzing from how brilliant the Friday went, so to say I was pumped for the Saturday would be an understatement!
So let’s jump straight into it shall we?
I already knew my way around the convention having spent all day there on Friday but when I got to the guest floor to get my VQ tickets, it appeared that some of the guests had moved around to may room for the weekend appearances and that completely threw my shit out of whack! Luckily the bigger guests were all in the same place so I managed to find my bearings pretty quick and then I decided to tackle my first autograph signing of the day.

So it’s been a week now since London Film and Comic Con 2017 and I’m still recovering from the weekend, as it was packed full for me! Had such an amazing time at the con meeting some really epic guests and just had an all around great time across the three day weekend. Essentially this post is going to be a round up of some of my personal favourite moments from the weekend, including meeting guests, talks I attended and the photo ops that I went to. I’m going to be doing coverage of all three days otherwise this will turn into a dissertation just for Comic Con! So first up I’m going to start with my favourite moments from Friday.
Without further ado let’s get to it shall we?

Here I am again, finding myself getting ready for another awesome weekend of nerdy greatness! It’s that time of year where London Film and Comic Con 2017 is coming to Olympia for it’s summer show.
This is probably my fourth time attending this convention but it’s the first time that I am properly going all out to meet guests and get photo ops with them, will be top Heroes and Villains Fan Fest? That would be a tough question to answer as I had the time of my life at Heroes and Villains so I’m hoping I enjoy myself at LFCC this year. The event, run by Showmasters, is a convention that is dedicated to film, TV shows and comics as the name of the event entitles. Besides Heroes and Villains, this is the convention I prefer over the likes of MCM as I am more into my film, TV shows and comic books so it’s the perfect event for me as a fan.

Tom Holland’s first solo outing as Spiderman is truly brilliant!
How’s the saying go? Third time the charm? Marvel finally deliver a true interpretation of Spiderman and capture the essence of the wall-crawler.
Spiderman: Homecoming is the first solo movie for Tom Holland’s web-slinger since the events of last year’s Captain America: Civil War. This movie is the combined efforts of Marvel Studios in conjunction with Sony Pictures. For me I am a massive Spiderman fan and I really hoped this movie was going to be the Spiderman film I’ve always wanted and man did it live up to that expectation! I was so impressed with Tom Holland’s performance and impact in Civil War that when they announced he was getting his own solo Spidey movie, I was so stoked to see what Marvel came up with.
In short, we have got an action packed, funny, story driven, witty and a true portrayal of what Spiderman is about and what his character stands for. I think setting this version of Peter Parker in his high school years was a great move by Marvel as some of my favourite stories of Spiderman were in his younger years, before he went on to fight alongside the ranks of The Avengers, and these are some of the iconic storylines from the web-slinger and I think the end result really delivered.

Here we go, my first book review…….well kind of!!
For those of you who don’t read comics, DC comics relaunched their comic series with the DC Universe: Rebirth. This is where it gets confusing, even for me who is a veteran when it comes to reading and understanding comic books. Rebirth is not a reboot as people previously thought, instead it is a continuation of the New 52 which launched back in 2011 which was a reboot of all the character’s individual comic series. So all the things that happened in New 52 is cannon and still happened. To sum up, DC Rebirth launches from the way the New 52 came to an end and it feels like the DC universe is in a version similar to the events of Flashpoint which is pretty cool. It does include continuity from the New 52 but these are stories that haven’t been told for and I think it was a way for the smaller titles to attract more attention.
