OK, so today,  I went to a Local Comic Convention in a town near me. I Got to meet a lot of people who had roles in Film and TV and wrote Comics.

First of all, I Met George Mann, writer of the Dark Souls comics, I told him about :iconfoxalbiazul: and his pet foxes, and how Foxalbiazul absolutely loves the series. I also asked if he was trying to put more Context and Exposition into the series, and he said ''Sort of, it's really set in it's own universe though and we try not to tread on the toes of the universe of the games too much''. And I got signed Comics by him with my name on them.

Second, I met Femi Taylor, aka Oola from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, she worked alongside the late Carrie Fisher in it. And I got a Selfie with her and a signed photograph for £15. It was quite awesome, and was the first time I met a Star Wars actor in person, as I have spoken to David Hayter(Better known as Snake from Metal Gear) on Twitter, he was in Star Wars: The Old Republic as the Male Player Character you could choose.

Third, I met Martin Ballantyne, who was The Joker's Henchman in the Dark Knight, I was amazed he had a role in The Golden Compass, and he was kind of like Rupert Farley in some ways, so I decided to get a signed photo of him, he was also in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I also got a picture taken with him.

Also there was Dan Tuite and Tim Plester from Game of Thrones, who I didn't speak to personally but I took a photo of. But they were there, also there was Hugh Spight(AKA Hugh Spirit), the Puppeteer who worked on The Dark Crystal, Star Wars and was a Dalek Operator, he sometimes comes to my Mum's work. He also worked as a Background Character in one of my favourite ever films, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and there was a guy dressed up as Judge Dredd, and he had a baton and a radio and everything, I remember seeing Judge Dredd's car at the Heritage Motor Museum, and there were men dressed up as Stormtroopers, which was also awesome.

Finally, RIP John Hurt, A brilliant actor who I knew for Doctor Who, Alien, The Plague Dogs, Harry Potter and Watership Down. He worked with Tim Curry in the Scream, sad to say he lost a battle with cancer.

Overall, I had a good day and getting those autographs and images was quite a fortune, but worth it. Hopefully one day I'll go to Confuzzled or the MCM Convention.

For the next convention, I think they should get Jon Glover, Miles Jupp and my uncle Roger Planer as guests, and maybe me and my dad could sell those Planet of the Apes comics that he wants to sell, hopefully with a little help with an American who starred in the 2001 Planet of the Apes movie called Paul Bunnell, or someone who starred in the movies.

Anyways, that's all for now, Scarface Out.
