As the weather begins to warm and comic fans and creators begin to brave stepping outside their front door, convention season begins to spark into life. The next on our calendar is the always excellent Leamington Comic Con on April 14th, which is set to feature a guest appearance from Judge Dredd creator John Wagner, Loki writer Al Ewing as well as a host of great indie and small pressers as well! We take a look at what you can enjoy on the day!

A new year and new convention season is here again, and so it’s time for Stuart Mulrain and his team of agents to lead the charge as the True Believers Comic Festival (TBCF) kicks off 2018’s event season. Now into its fourth year, TBCF doesn’t look like it plans to go anywhere any time soon, but can they continue to impress as with prior events or is this a convention which has reached its peak?

Growing on it’s success from 2017, Coventry Comic Con has had a makeover for the new year and moving forward will be officially known as Covcon, after a public vote. Our roving reporter Olly MacNamee is part of Covcon’s inner circle and so gives us the lowdown on what’s happening in the world of comics in Coventry this September.

With a line up that featured a veritable who’s who of the U.K. Small press comic book scene, along with some top name guests from the Big Two and beyond, Nottingham Comic Con has become one of the most anticipated events of the year. So for our last convention of the year, we made the trip up north for the first time, to enjoy a great day that not even a fire alarm could ruin!

As one of our favourite events from 2016, this year’s Bristol Comics and Zine Fair had sky high expectations, but they managed to more than managed to live up these high hopes thanks to an incredibly well run event packed full of exciting and diverse creators in a really fun and packed (and most importantly full!) venue.

This weekend sees the Bristol Comics and Zine Fair return to The Station in Bristol between 12.00 and 6.00. This free to enter event was one of our favourite shows last year and this year’s event features an amazing line up of exhibitors, many of whom are familiar names for readers of the site, as well as some fantastic new up and coming creators.

Thought Bubble continue to be the pinnacle of the Comic Convention calendar for indie and small press comic creators, and this year’s event looks set to be even bigger and better than ever! With a guest list that include some of the biggest names in comics (such as Brian K Vaughan, Sara Pichelli and more) alongside the very best of the UK indie scene it’s a must attend event for anyone who loves comics. We take a look at some of the books being released on the weekend.

When it comes to venues for a comic convention, you won’t find many more picturesque than the Blackfriars Priory in historic Gloucester – home to this weekend’s True Believers Summer Variant. This ancient priory was a truly one of a kind venue that made for a really fantastic day out for punters and creators alike.

Back in February we were lucky enough to take part in the amazing True Believers Comic Festival (our first time behind a table and one of our favourite events in the convention calendar!). Well in just a few weeks on Sunday August 20th, Stuart Mulrain and his team of believers will be running another event, this time in Gloucester’s Blackfriar’s Priory – so here’s what you can look forward to at the True Believers Summer Variant Edition!
