Malta Comic Con Returns This December

Malta Comic ConIt only comes once a year. But when it does it Rocks! Good vibes, friendly atmosphere, colourful costumes, smiling folk and the whole of St. James Cavalier buzzing with creative energy. Wicked Comics have announced that the 7th edition of the Malta Comic Con will be held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December 2015 at St. James Cavalier in Valletta, the capital city of Malta. The impressive venue was originally a bastion (part of the fortifications of the City) constructed by the Knights Hospitallers which was later converted to a vibrant Art’s and Creativity Centre.

The intimate and friendly atmosphere prevalent at the Malta Comic Con ensures that visitors can spend quality time with their favorite creators who are always happy to chat, sign, sketch and create commissioned artwork for their fans. As customary, we will once again provide a varied guest roster of professional writers and artists who have worked on a number of popular characters for all the major comic publishers as well as other who have been publishing quality independent books. With virtually no queuing the Malta Comic Con provides the ideal platform for fan-creator interaction. Complementing our guests will be a number of up and coming creators from abroad as well as a plethora of talented local creators promoting their exciting work.

The official Malta Comic Con Cosplay competition and the Fat Spidey Roaming Cosplay Awards will be returning. In addition to the various skits performed by our fabulous cosplayers, Marianne Galea and her Fantasy Showgirls will also be performing themed dances at the theatre. They’re also working on providing more interactive and cosplay oriented events which they will reveal in due time. Professional photographers will be available on both days for everyone in attendance who wishes to have some quality pictures taken. So get started on those wonderful costumes!

The video game area will once again be buzzing with activity ranging from retro to currents gaming and the fan favourite competitions will also be returning to determine the best gamers in Malta.
