Important Announcement

It has come to our attention that the organiser of another convention has been contacting venues and vendors representing himself as the organiser Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention.

We would respectfully request that the individual ceases this behaviour immediately.

We would be grateful if any vendors who have been contacted by this individual disregard any claims or statements made by the individual and only accept as genuine communication coming from the SCGC email address (info@scgc.org.uk) of from the company directors Simon Kendrick, Ricky Webber and Adam Wilmot.

Thank You!



If you ventured up Swansea High Street on Saturday these are the scenes that would have likely welcomed you as SCGC got under way.

The event was so popular that we  hit capacity for the venue by 10:30am and had to operate a one-in-one-out system for the rest of the day.

So I think it's fair to say that the day was a success, and for this all we can say is "Thank You".  Quite a few thank you's in fact...

We have had a lot of support over the last couple of months and without naming names (as we'd probably forget some and that wouldn't be fair), all we can say is thank you to everybody who has supported us at any point during the planning or running of the convention.

We also need to say a massive thank you to our team of volunteers who gave up their Saturday to ensure that the day ran smoothly, many of who even worked through their breaks to ensure everything ran to plan.

While we're thanking people, our vendors deserve a mention for taking the risk on a brand new convention, and for kindly donating prizes to the raffle, as do our panellists for giving up their time to provide entertainment throughout the day.   A special mention needs to be given to the Carmarthenshire Ghostbusters for stepping in at the last second to fill an empty panel slot.

Lastly, thank you to everyone who attended throughout the day, and to all the cosplayers who put in so much effort to create their costumes and made the day look so cool.

We are pleased to announce that we raised a grand total of £3127.70 for our charity Maggie's!  The money was raised through a combination of ticket sales, the raffle, and the bring and buy sale.

So for a final time THANK YOU,  and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Countdown to SCGC - Only 2 Days to Go

Only 2 Days to go until SCGC!

To get you in the mood, one of our vendors will be telling you about themselves.

Today it's the turn of;

Trinity Game Students

We are the 3rd year BA Creative Computer Games Design Students from University of Wales Trinity Saint David, showcasing three games that formed part of our final major projects.

  • Jurassic Kart is a Dinosaur Racing game. Join Rex, Carlton and Big Al as they run through colourful and fun environments. Fun for the whole Family!
  •  Blackout is a rogue-like dungeon crawler first person shooter set in a Sci Fi world. The game is designed to be fast paced and will also utilise the Oculus Rift.
  • Four Norseman is a turn based, strategy Viking game. Venture through a long lost crypt of ancient warriors of old, pleasing the gods as you must.

Last Chance to get SCGC tickets online!

We'll be closing online ticket sales for SCGC at 12:00 (midday) on Friday 27th - that's tomorrow lunchtime to you and me!

This is to give us time to process all of your orders and make sure we've got everyone's tickets ready for the day.

You will still be able to buy tickets on the door on the day (and they'll still be £2.50).

People who have bought tickets online will get a separate (faster) queue for entry to the event.

Catfood Comics ‘Monster Kids’ was published in volume 20 of the digital online magazine, Aces Weekly, in late 2015. The strip, co-created with writer Adam Wilmot, tells the tale of a motley bunch of cute, but beastly, creatures trying to find the perfect thing to take to their school's show and tell.

Other comics work includes story and art for a strip in Watercloset press’s anthology ‘The Irregulars’, starring the Gentry, the steampunk victorian adventurers.
