Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 14.11.10This weekend we returned to the sleepy Wiltshire town of Melksham for one of our favourite events of the year – Melksham Comic Convention 2015. It may not be the biggest event or have the most high profile names, but it creates an opportunity for comic fans of all ages to get together and celebrate their passion with like-minded friends – and after all, isn’t that what events like this are supposed to be all about?!

Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 14.11.10It’s not long to go before our friends at the Melksham Comic Con 2015 open their doors for another year. One of the best local conventions in the UK, we catch up with Conventions organiser to find out about their plans for this year’s events and what’s been happening with her and her team.

True Believers Comic FestivalOnce upon a time, to go to a comic book convention was an expensive daydream for many UK fans due to them being exclusively an American event. However, thanks to events like the London Super Comic Convention, Thought Bubble and smaller shows like the Melksham and Leamington Cons, it has become a reality for UK comics fans. The latest to join this every growing roster is the True Believers Comic Festival held at Cheltenham Race Course, on February 7th. But was it a thoroughbred, or just a show pony?

Ninjak LSCCValiant Entertainment is crossing the Atlantic for the very first time this March to exhibit at the London Super Comic Convention 2015 (LSCC) – the United Kingdom’s largest comic book convention – for a weekend packed with Valiant programming, special guests, and exclusive convention-only releases! To celebrate this trans-Atalnctic trip they have released an exclusive Ninjak LSCC variant as well as revealing the Valiant themed cover to the LSCC event program.
