The London Super Comic Convention, announced for February next year (25-26th), is ramping up an impressive guest list, with the likes of US creators George Perez, Howard Chaykin, Bernie Wrightson, Mike Carey, Tony Moore, Bob Layton and more all confirmed as attending.
Many top British creators and other International stars will be confirmed within the next couple of weeks, with Brian Bolland, Mark Buckingham, Paul Cornell, Duncan Fegrado, Sean Phillips already announced from the UK – and the team behind the event say they are not even half way through adding all the creators that will be attending.
“This convention is shaping up to be the largest American Creator driven convention the UK has seen for two decades,” say organisers.
With over 600 tables, and Exhibitors traveling from all over Europe and America, stay tuned for the update to the Exhibitors section of the event’s web site over the next week, with back issue dealers, publishers, retailers and indie publications from the UK, Europe and America all to be added.
With the U.K.shows featuring only a handful of American creators, the organisers of the Convention say they want to put the Super in Convention, and give the UK the next best thing to being at one of the large USconventions, by bringing those creators en masse across the pond.
