Couldn’t make it over to San Diego for this year’s Comic Con? Fear not, you can get the same experience – or near enough – right here in London next April.
Kapow! Comic Con is kicking off at the London Business Design Centre on the weekend of 9 April for an entire two days dedicated to the very best of comic book films, TV shows and games.
And just to prove that this won’t be a pale imitation of the San Diego event, Kapow! promises some brilliant guest stars.
CLiNT contributors Frankie Boyle, Stewart Lee and Noel Clarke will all be taking part in panel discussions. Meanwhile, John Romita Jr. (Kick-Ass), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Frank Quitely (Batman), Leinil Yu (Secret Invasion), Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates, The Authority) and Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Civil War) will all be about signing autographs and giving exclusive sneak peeks of upcoming works.
Then there will be the first ever Stan Lee Awards. “This is a fantastic platform to reward the cream of comic book talent for all their creativity and imagination throughout 2010, which has brought us so much entertainment and inspiration,” says Lee himself.
Tickets for the event are now available to buy online at the Kapow! official website (opens in new tab) .
