Comics Uncovered postponed, merged with ICE Birmingham in September

Comics Uncovered 2018

The comic creator-focused event Comics Uncovered, announced in February, will now be part of the ICE Birmingham line up in September and will not take place in July as previously announced.

“Due to circumstances beyond my control I have had to postpone this year’s Comics Uncovered and re-integrate the conference with ICE Birmingham in September,” organiser Shane Chebsey announced earlier today.

“All those booked in and all guests and staff have been informed.”

Guest Speakers lined up for Comics Uncovered include influential professionals from across the world of Comics and over the two days you will have the opportunity to join both short two hour workshops and full weekend courses plus everything in between.

Some events are for beginners, whilst some are for more advanced creators.

Most guests are still attending on the new September dates and all tickets bought are vaild for the new dates with a VIP ICE ticket added on, Shane has also announced.

There are also extra events added to existing tickets to ensure those already booked in will receive value for money in consideration of the possibility of inconvenience to them.

Refunds to those unable to attend the new dates will go out over the next few weeks as we establish which delegates require refunds, if any.

“I have done everything in my power to try and find an alternative solution to postponing the event,” says Shane, “but after consultation with my staff and friends within the industry I have concluded that postponement and a change of dates is the only way forward that minimises the impact on current delegates and on our other events.”

While unfortunate for the team behind this much-anti Patel creator gathering, this does mean ICE Birmingham in September will now be a much more substantial event with much more to offer than originally billed.  The full details of both aspects will be communicated through the usual marketing channels over the coming weeks and months.

You can of course also now book tickets for both events.

“Please bear with us while we restructure and re-market the evolved event for September,” Shane asks.
