Internationally renowned comic arts festival Glasgow Comic Con has announced a line-up consisting of the great and the good from the world of sequential art. Guests include Mark Millar, Cameron Stewart, David Lloyd, John Higgins, Sean Phillips and industry legends John Wagner and Alan Grant.
Glasgow Comic Con is now in its fifth year and will run on the weekend of July 4th and 5th in the CCA: Glasgow, The Art School Union and The Renfield Centre. In addition to hosting the usual talks, panels and rows of traders and artists, the event will also highlight new creators such as Colin Bell, Gary Chudleigh, Gill Hatcher, Iain Laurie, John Lees, Dan Cornwell and Neil Slorance.
On top of the convention, a festival will run from June 30th to July 5th. Highlights include an exclusive exhibition called The Comic Art of Millarworld and Beyond, stand up performance Hero Worship, an interactive comics class/exhibition, and special screenings.
Sha Nazir, Festival Director said: “It’s great to see the event flourish from our humble beginnings of a one day, 500 attendees convention to over 5000 participants across a city wide festival. Glasgow comic con is the home comics, graphic novels, comic art and writing and is a fantastic platform for the 100 plus creators who will visit our city and opens its pages to the world.”
