We’ve been big fans of the event in Wrexham since our first visit back in 2012, when we got the chance to meet and work with Thomas Nicholas and Straight Jacket Legends at the after show part at Central Station, since then we have been several times and enjoyed the selection of the Wales Comic Con Guests.
