Based on one I went to in 2011, the comic con was really more a 'mini' memorabilia, but with slightly more than the average amount of comic dealers, it certainly was not all comics by a long way.

It's been Collectormania in Glasgow the past couple of years.
It was actually better than the Memorabelia which had just turned into 90% just autographed photos.

Default Oh dear....

Hope you all had a good ComicCon - we arrived at 1135, queued till 1300 and were told we were still a minimum of an hour away from getting in. Afraid to say we gave up. Not impressed - the hall held 4000, apparently, and that's the number of advance tickets which were sold. Understand these things are popular but the queues were enormous. Our teenager was delighted to be going to his first event like this - he hid his disappointment very well, but I bet there were more than a few who never got in.

Night night,

Patrick

Heard that it was a crowd of 10,000
and at one point people had been queuing for 4 hours
They had extended the hours 9-6 but noticed the main guests stopped signing at 5.00
would not have been chuffed if I had waited that long
Did not get off to best start when after a lone set up on Friday stated my wife could not get a pass on the Saturday as two had been issued - as its their rule to fit the pass
I would have needed one on both arms!!
Definite need for improvement.
