" More than 50 different traders will feature at the event, including a series of guest appearances from writers and artists from Marvel, DC, Imagine and 2000AD Comic."

It says here.

Perth? Oh yeah, I'm in ... maybe this could lure a certain fish from transatlantic exile?

Expectations about this need to be managed. The BGCP events are basically comic marts with cosplay, face-painting etc.  They’re what passes for a comic con in places like East Kilbride, Dunoon etc.

Looking forward to seeing all those creators from well-known publisher "Imagine".

To be fair we seldom get out of the bar area. Also Perth is equidistant from every point of civilization, so the Furryboot Brigade and even Rich could traipse down for the day, altho the trains out are few and far between on a Sunday, I know that from visiting my brother ::)

Given the lifting of (some) restrictions, what's the consensus of meeting up for a pint FCBD or Perth?

I will say yes! Deffo!

Then bail.

Perth eh?
That's that big roundabout cum bus station in Southshire, just past aw the hills where only strange people live, aye?
I might be able to make it- though the daft midweek date might end up being a problem depending on work (though it's a short Megabus trip so it could still work), therefore I shall tentatively say 'Yes' with the inevitable possibility of an eventual 'No'.

After the last couple of Glasgow 'events'  I attended, my expectations are barely at the dizzy heights of sea-level, being somewhere between Atlantis and Sculptor's Cave. Still, it's better than my hoose which only has cheap food, tasteless decor, bad TV and ill company but fabulously noisy music.

I had a look at some of the "comic-cons" which had cropped up around where I used to live (East Anglia - so Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire).  The fact that comic creators are actually mentioned in that Perth announcement makes them more comic-oriented than the ones I looked at.  It was (literally) all about the cosplay and film tie-ins.

Given that the Perth con on in the last weekend of August, you'd think there would be some more info kicking about the interweb by now... evidence perhaps of the GRennie's droids lack of faith?

How about we say Perth on saturday 28th August 1pm in a boozer yet to be named....

Now who's in?



Build it and they will come!

The venue - which is a bar-free sports and leisure centre - currently closed as it’s being used as a vaccination centre.  No word on whether it’ll be open by August.

Enjoy your Perth Comic Con, guys.

Thanks Gordon, so that’s that ruled out, maybe leave it and see what the next round of level reductions are?

Mind you, ‘a punch of Scotsmen’ seems like a reasonable collective noun.

"The Souther Contingent will laugh at us again."

Now there's an admission I'd thought I'd never hear.....

I just thought it was all about letters and pictures of food up in the wilds..... eh Buttonman?

Little known fact : I used to live in Perth way back in the '80's.
Was run out of town..
Was told if I ever show my face or step foot in the place again unmentionable things would happen to my backside.
So it's a NO from me, think I'll try Shrewsbury instead.
Keep on Drokking !!.

Not at all- there's whisky, hard drugs and violence as well.

Hell it's Perth, you just have to 'not come from Perth' really...  :lol:

Looking at the organisers’ page (Big Glasgow Comic Con) I see the date is now just ‘TBA’, so obviously they’ve been told there’s no guaranteed re-opening date for the venue yet.

Looking at the page, they’ve got plenty of other regional Scottish events listed.  How about a trip doom the water to Dunoon, or the exotic climes of Rutherglen?

I take it Inverurie Comic Con is off your 'to do' list then...
