EPISODE synopsis

The weekend we were all excitedly waiting for is sadly over for another year, and on this episode Luke Bugg “The Geek Of Steel” was interviewing at the event. The weekend was filled with cosplayers, celebrities, creators and creatures and Luke had a great time interacting with them all. Next year will soon be with us and you can order your tickets for Portsmouth Comic Con 2025 now.

Luke had this to say about the event:

“Portsmouth Comic Con means so much to me and I was honoured when I was asked to produce this Podcast. When I first heard about the event in 2018 I knew it was something the city, and the South Coast, needed and it’s been a joy to see it evolve over the years while also still holding onto its core values. 

It’s an entertaining and inclusive weekend for fans and families who want to embrace their passions while enjoying everything the world of Comics and Pop Culture has to offer. This event not only makes me proud to be a geek, but to be a geek from Portsmouth.”
