Page. Irish novelist and Dredd writer Michael Carroll will also be making a rare UK appearance at the event.
With more than 100 exhibitors scheduled to attend, the diverse range of publications, books, original art and toys, alongside convention exclusives, will ensure that collectors and fans of all ages should find something to take away from the event.
The organisers say they have conducted comprehensive surveys to find out exactly what the public wants and promise some extra special surprises. Things already revealed include a range of panel discussions, interviews with star guests and creators, professional critiques from publishers and editors, as well as competitions and activities. There’s also talk of comicthemed screenings at Birmingham’s arts centre which will include guest speakers, although the full programme is yet to be announced.
It looks like Britain’s second biggest city has its sight set on putting on a good show.
