The team behind Nottingham Comic Convention have just announced this year’s event will take place on Saturday 14th October – and released their promotional poster by Roger Langridge, a previous guest.
“We have begun the process that is the long, yet exciting, road to Nottingham Comic Con 2017”, say the team via their official site, “and what better way to start that off than announcing the official date of the con and unveiling the new artwork for this year.
“Mark the date in your diary and we look forward to seeing you there!”
The date does put the Convention in direct competition with this year’s already-announced Lakes International Comic Art Festival, reflecting how crowded the convention calendar has become in recent years.
