This year the Hull Comic Con was held in the university night club, which must have made the logistics of the event extra challenging. If the dance pit wasn’t a problem the lights certainly were; the venue was very dark, with limited lighting, which meant the stall holders had to move their tables forward a foot, cutting off valuable space for con goers to peruse from. Everyone made the best of the situation though, and squeezed on through.

In the pit there were a number of tables set up with vintage games, allowing people to pick up a controller and give the classics a go. There was also a comic book stall, a 3D printer in progress, and Kate Russel selling her book, Elite Dangerous: Mostly Harmless. Climbing out of the pit and walking the edge of the room the stalls had a variety of pop culture merchandise; with Lego jewellery, Star Wars lamps and super hero T-shirts aplenty. There were also artists working and selling in this area, some of them giving a live painting demonstration.

In a room off the side of the one just described, talks were being held. This included an artist panel, a book reading from Kate Russel and an interview with Colin Baker, the 6th Dr Who. From these talks I discovered a blue, agony aunt kitten called Flimsy, how to run a Kickstarter campaign, and Colin Baker really doesn’t like the F word. That’s F for favorite by the way.

Overall a fun day out was had by all.
