These comic cons are big business and easily pack exhibition halls over a weekend. This one looks good with a decent line up, Batgirl To mention a few in attendance; Martin Shaw, Phillip Glenister, Christopher Lloyd, William Shatner.

I can understand an actor attending a convention because he enjoys meeting fans or as an ego boost, or even, God forbid, that he's grateful to the people who grant him an often very good living ( the audience ), but the business of unreasonably high charges for signatures & photos has to be alienating for most fans. I know if I were a fan of a particular actor & he charged silly money for a signed item I'd lose respect for him unless he was on his uppers & desperate. Look at it this way, if you happened to meet William Shatner in the street & politely asked him for his autograph & he asked you for £95 you'd be a fool to give it to him, it's the corporate nature of the convention that demands the premium price tag. I've got more respect for those who don't sign autographs at all. Either sign without charge, sign for a price most people can afford or don't sign at all.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?
