It has been over a decade now since I have been to a comics convention, and it is a daunting thing to get back into. They have grown into these massive events with alooot more consumers and merchants participating. This summer I am going to Anglicon, a smaller local con which looks amazingly fun, to dip my toe back into this suddenly crazy world.
This is a fan-run British media convention which will be heavily (but perhaps not entirely) focused on Doctor Who. They also give all profits to the local PBS station, which is very cool.
GeekGirlCon celebrates and honors the legacy of women contributing to science and technology; comics, arts, and literature; and game play and game design by connecting geeky women world-wide and creating community to foster continued growth of women in geek culture through events. It would be interesting to go to a mainly girl con and chill with my fellow ladies.
The Convention is a full day event that will give Doctor Who enthusiasts an amazing chance to delve into the inner workings of the hit TV show and learn how it is created – a journey from script to screen. With unique access to the cast and production crew, this event offers fans a rare chance to see behind-the-scenes of the world’s longest running sci-fi show. It would be unreal to go to see this on a London trip someday!
New York Comic Con is the second largest pop culture convention in America and the only one that takes place in the comic book, publishing, media and licensing capital of the world — Gotham City. For some reason I just feel more drawn towards this one over San Diego.
Gallifrey One is the world’s largest and longest-running annual fan-run Doctor Who convention. The more realistic, yet still awesome, choice to get my Doctor Who fix.
