    Cosplay

    Really need to grow a set and do this. I took my wee boy as Iron Man last year and he had a blast. There was a girl last year dressed as a Tardis who was perfect. As in comic book, movie star, blueprint perfect lol. Cosplay should really come with health warning labels haha. Genuinely stunned at the standard people dress to. Taking that much time and dedication is something to be super proud of.

    I'm a freak mate, I don't go to meet people at these things. I've the most screwed up moral compass on earth thats hard to explain but something doesnt sit well with me paying a person just to meet them. I love the occasion, meeting random people and learning. I dont do signatures or photos with anyone in any walk of life. Id rather just meet them and say "you're awesome for such and such a reason, thanks for those cool memories" and walk on like the oddball I am haha.

    you'll be fine, just dont believe the 'everyones friendly' stuff. Last year I went alone the first day then took my wee boy (dressed as Iron Man) the 2nd day. The venue was mobbed, staff were was great, vendors superb but tons of visitors were grumpy, rude and honked of BO. Way to go on the stereotype killin, folks! My buddy is coming up from Croydon this year as he is just getting into Comics which is all kinds of awesomes for me If you can, grab a bud or meet someone from here, I'd say it would make your day/days a lot better. I fired over a wee follow on Twitter, there should be some chat there on the lead-up

    It's worldwide, not just Scottish. It gets bigger and bigger each year. I just went into Stirling instead of Glasgow this year, much easier Cool i was in Stirling for Free comic book day too i was there at about 10:30 Nice and early lol. Seen your wee side thing, Im in Dunipace as well most days so Stirling is handy for it. Shame Falkirk has nothing, but not sure of a huge demand. Thats true lol worried they would be all sold out i know what you mean it would be great to have a comic/memoribilia shop in falkirk but i dont think there would be a big demand for it there used to be a wee music/film memoribila shop in falkirk called fame but it only lasted a year,do you work in dunipace ? Live in Denny, work in Glasgow, own a business in Dunipace haha. Its "Red" if that gives you a clue. Did you make it out for the gala?

    Just one of these things bud. We made a day of it as Hamleys were doing a superhero day but when we went by FP at 1030ish they were out already lol. Geek Retreat was the same. Its great putting days on like this though, roping kids in and getting that emotional tie. The wee guy wasnt exactly stuck for comics, my house is packed with them anyway haha. Have a good day bud :)

    I always feel bad picking up freebies. Horrible explaining to my son last year why there were no comics left as queues of grown men had snaffled them all early doors. Im sure I heard they are going heavy on GotG this year to build interest for later in the year. The recent Brian Michael Bendis run has been really good.

    No worries wee bud :) One of my best mates lives in Croydon and after Glasgow being crazily busy last year, I was thiking about going to a different one this year. I don't mind heading along but London area means I can hook up with him. NE would make it a day trip or overnight stop, plus you lot are pretty friendly anyway Im sure if I do a wee Twitter search I can find some info as well and people on the day to take pity
