Comicon2018: comics, cosplayers and more
Telling Comicon2018 is not an easy task, if not trying to remember that from April 28 to May 1st, at the Mostra d’Oltremare fair, in Napoli, thousands of boys and girls, but even “over 40s” and families met to swarm for hours, uninterruptedly, between the rooms where the original tables of the most famous Italian and foreing comics authors were displayed, the stands of the main publishers and distributors, like Bonelli and Panini, and the trade show where you could find in mint condition old comic books of Disney rather then of Editrice Corno.

And then again: there were virtual reality virtual games station to suit all tastes, whole computers payload with which competing in tournament with tens of other players, escape rooms devoted to Harry Potter or horror themed, a whole Asian village dedicated to Asian culture for mangas and cosplay lovers and an historical re-enactments park.
But probably the real stars of Comicon2018 were exactly is visitors, hundreds of whom dressed-up like cosplayers inspired from manga lik Onepiece or Naruto to the villains of Batman, from steampunk style to tv series as Doctor Who or the Game of Thrones.
Comicon2018: from gumpla to archery
We were at Comicon2018 in its last day, had fun, spent the whole day without stopping for a moment, wandering around the stands, taking photos of most original cosplayers, all of whom very friendly, we had fun mounting Bandai gunplas which we then brought home (they were a kind homage to visitors from Gunpla Builder Campania group), got medieval archery, played chess and… regretted that clock inside Comicon2018 universe must run at an accelerated speed, you come in early morning and it’s already evening.
