We knew Stockport had its fair share of comic and movie fans but WOW (Cough)! What a day! We all want to say a massive thank you to all of you folk who turned out on Saturday. It’s safe to say that it was one of the most fun days to be around the town center in recent memory for us, and perhaps many other local comic and cosplay enthusiasts! We even heard on the grapevine that over 20,000 people had descended on the town over that day. If that’s true that’s bonkers, but it certainly would be no surprise judging by the size of the crowds.
Of course, a mega-thankyou goes out to Totally Stockport, The staff of the Merseyway, Paul Prescott (Funky Figures and North West Comic Conventions), and our own John Webster (Wow Comix and Wow Events) for the arrangements. But also a big thankyou also to Stockport as a whole! The shops around the town and their staff, the families, the wanderers, the cosplayers, and the vendors. There were cameras out and smiles everywhere. It was just so great to see Stockport town center so vibrant on a bright sunny day, especially after such a polarizing couple of years with Covid. Hey, nobody could complain about the lack of masks on Saturday!
Due to us at Wow Comix working for most of the event, we only got a few snaps overall. If you have any photos, we would love to see them and add them to our blog here if possible! Send them over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM our socials!
So, here is a small selection of what we imagine will have been thousands of overall photos taken on the day! Let us know if you spot yourself! (Wait, isn’t that the last thing a crowd of masked Superheroes would ever… Oh, never mind!)
