This was the inaugural year for the London Super Comic Con & many of the big-wigs from the comic book industry showed their support & made their presence felt at the event. Loads of publishers & creators both big & small showcased, sold & signed their work.

While there weren't any Marvel events, comic book legend Stan Lee was present (see right >) on both days at his own LSCC panel! Apparently memorabilia including oil paintings signed by Stan The Man were being sold for £1,150 a piece!

On Feb 25, a cosplay competition was held & you'll can see some of the awesome cosplays at the LSCC! London has definitely got it alright! Check out some of the cosplays below!
