Following the successful outing of their first convention in Edinburgh, Hero Conventions have decided to re-brand their Something Bl**dy Awesome event as Edinburgh Comic Con.
The first convention under the new namee will take place in 2015.
The initial steps to implement the name change took place before the inaugural event in April this year, but to avoid confusion, the full rollout of the rebrand was held back until after the ‘SBA’ convention.
The reasons behind the name change are very simple,” said co-organiser James Lundy. “It’s a much more family friendly name for a comic con held in Edinburgh by people from Edinburgh.”
For the moment, on some material the SBA logo remains loosely attached to Edinburgh Comic Con. This will be phased out slowly in the run up to the event next year.
