A new section to talk about cons, Wizard World Chicago is this weekend, and San Diego is in a month (I am going to it). All of the news from these events can be posted there.

Closest thing we get in the UK is something like the Memorabilia show at the NEC.

Been to most of them but the comics side of things has gotten smaller over the years.

Highlight for me was getting a Frank Quitely sketch & buying some of his Batman pages at a 1998 show.

Is anyone from the UK thinking of attending a comic con?
They are some in the last quarter of the year that I found here http://www.downthetubes.net/resources/comics_links/conventions.html
PM me if any body is considering it, I haven't been to one in years, think it may be as much as 20 years ago and it was combined with a RPG convention, lots of people in elf outfits drinking scrumpy.
