Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page - Darth Maul made an ap­pear­ance

FROM Star Wars and Dis­ney princesses to Mar­vel he­roes and more, cos­play­ers filled Guild­ford for the sec­ond ever Comic Con. Af­ter a suc­cess­ful sum­mer last year, the an­nual con­ven­tion of all things comic books and tele­vi­sion re­turned to Guild­ford Spec­trum last week­end (Septem­ber 2-3). Fans were able to get up close with stars like Jayson Warner Smith and Joshua Mikel from The Walk­ing Dead, and Clive Russell, Aimee Richard­son and Ross O’Hennessy from Game of Thrones.

The star guests were also around for spe­cial talks, of­fer­ing fans an in­sight into the mak­ing of their shows and char­ac­ters.

Cos­play­ers – fans who dress up as their he­roes – were able to get pho­tos and au­to­graphs with their he­roes as well take part in pho­to­shoots and cos­play com­pe­ti­tions.

This year, the team also ex­panded to cre­ate a full retro gam­ing area set up for gamers who couldn’t get enough of the Nin­tendo 64, Sony PS1, SNES, and SEGA con­soles.

The event was a huge hit with plenty of fans shar­ing their snaps on so­cial me­dia.
