The doors opened at 15 on Friday and we were welcomed to the biggest event for comics. There wasn’t as much people as I’d thought it would be, but I did although get informed that Saturday would be packed.
We were greeted by the latest Android from Starwars and an entire lego Star wars army. Beside them, R2D2 and his companions greeted the visitors with it’s signature sounds. When we stepped in I was a bit disappointed to the small size of such an event, yet there was enough stands and shops to go around.
From Fox to Playstation to Swedish Military, all of them were jammed in one place. Why the military was there? I dont know, maybe catch some Call of Duty players and recruit them? Either way, it seemed as if this years ComicCon was mainly focused on games, games, and more games.
All the major players were there; Playstation showing their VR, Nitendo demonstrating the latest Mario-games, Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus, Starlink and many many more were showcasing the newest games soon availible to the public.
In between you could catch cosplayers walking around. This year, Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad seemed seemed to be the character of choice and a couple of manga school girls. The day went by fast and soon enough Saturday came around.
It was packed. People from all corners of Sweden and it’s neighbouring countries flocked the mess hall. Today Mads Mikkelsen, known for Hannibal and Doctor Strange had an Q&A and people were bombarding him with personal and professional questions. After that we took a stroll around the hall and played the games and checked the shops. Mystery boxes seemed to be the talk of the day and everyone walked around with a orange box or a specifically themed box, from Dr.Who to Minecraft. All in all, this years ComicCon was exciting and fun but they should’ve had more focus on Comics like Marvel or DC and not so much on games.
