On Saturday 28th March the Empire Hall in Totton will play host to Southampton Comic Con 2! With the first year’s cartoon and comic con being such a success, how could you refuse another? What’s It All About? In 2012 Dave Penny and Wayne Streak met at Def Con 1, a Star Wars themed convention that is now held annually in Southampton. They shared a love for conventions and joined forces between Def Con, the SO16 Troopers and Nerdagedddon.net and became Nerdageddon.co.uk. In 2014 they hosted Southampton’s first ever comic con which was a roaring success. Not only are the conventions great fun for all of the family, but they also help local charities such as Clic Sargent which is a charity that helps provide accommodation for families of children fighting cancer so that they can always be nearby. They also donate to the Piam Brown unit in Southampton General hospital which is a paediatric oncology and haematology centre. Continue reading →
