V For Vendetta in G For Glasgow

As part of the events surrounding the new Glasgow Comic Con in June there will be a screening of V For Vendetta at the Glasgow Film Theatre. Taking place at 5:30pm on Friday 17 June, the evening before the convention, the screening will also include a question and answer session with V For Vendetta artist David Lloyd. Tickets for the screening will be available from the GFT box office from 23 May 2011.

The Glasgow Comic Con itself will take place on Saturday 18 June at the deconsecrated Macintosh Church in Maryhill, Glasgow beginning at 10am and running through to 6pm. It will be followed at the same venue that evening by the separately ticketed Scottish Independent Comic Book Awards Party. It should be noted that tickets for both the day convention and the evening party are now sold out and anyone still wishing to attend should check the convention website for details of how to join the waiting list for ticket returns.

For those 500 people who already have their day tickets booked, the convention organisers have announced some additional guests and the current line up now includes writers Jim Alexander, Emma Beeby, Martin Conaghan, Alan Grant, Ferg Handley, Mark Millar, Gordon Rennie and Jim Stewart plus artists Dave Alexander, Peter Doherty, Gary Erskine, Jamie Grant, Jon Howard, David Lloyd, Colin MacNeil, Dan McDaid, Will Pickering, Frank Quitely and Stevie White.

There are more details of the Glasgow Film Theatre screening of V For Vendetta as well as the convention itself at the Glasgow Comic Con website.
