Comic Con is here once again! It's like Christmas and Halloween rolled into one and I've finally got my badge, thank the Old Gods and the New.

For three days, I'll witness bat shit crazy outfits, gawk at some of my favourite sci-fi/ fantasy stars (I'm looking at you Dominic Cooper), and enjoy free food! Ha! what's not to love?


My AudioBoom squad will be there, too, giving out cool stickers and recording interviews with attendees, artists and vendors throughout the weekend.

For those of you who can't make it this year, catch some of the highlights and dark arts on AudioBoom's exclusive Comic Con MCM London channel right here!

Hosts Londyn and Adam go scary-deep into Dark Knight mythos and minutiae and they get the best guests.
