The Malta Comic Con (MCC) is a 2 day event which celebrates comic creators, comic books, books, movies, TV series, table top games, video games, role playing games, cosplaying and virtually anything that is related to the comic culture.
This year’s comic con will be held on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November at Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre in Ta’ Qali. Doors open from 10am till 6pm on Saturday and 11am till 7pm on Sunday. The MCC is both entertaining and educational and on both days there will be material specifically intended for children and material specifically intended for a mature audience. However, particular focus is always given towards providing a platform for creators to meet their fans. The names will be communicated shortly but one thing we will promise is that there is going to be some really BIG names this year.
Joining the professional creators will be a vast array of independent creators both Maltese and foreigners all of whom will be exhibiting their work, signing and selling their comic books and always willing to chat to fans.
Another aspect of the convention which Wicked Comics also focus on is the creative development of potential artists. To this end every comic con is brimming with workshops, discussion panels, talks, and focus groups which are led and moderated by professional creators.
Part of the MFCC will be brimming with activity during the MCC. Besides the artwork exhibited by all creators taking part in the convention this year other exhibitions will be held too. Also a variety of comic culture related movies and anime will be shown throughout the convention.
Gamers can simply play for fun on a variety of leading consoles or enter specific tournaments held throughout both days, while a number of exhibition and introductory table-top and creative role playing games will also be held. Fans will once again be encouraged to create their own costumes of their favourite heroes and come dressed in these costumes. Should they wish they can also participate in the cosplay competition which will be held on both days. A number of commercial stands will compliment all these events.
The professional creators coming from England, Ireland, Scotland, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and the USA look forward to this opportunity to chat with their fans and sign their books. Besides selling their books and original pieces of artworks the majority of these creators also do sketches for free during the convention. An opportunity which art lovers and collectors certainly cannot afford to miss!
Unlike other events the convention is best experienced by those who stay for the whole duration of the show. Wicked Comics guarantees that the Malta Comic Con offers something for everyone!
