Fans descend on Melksham for bigger comic convention
6:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in Latest News
Comic book fans from across the South West will be heading for Melksham this weekend, for its second comic convention.
Melksham Comic Con will take place in the Assembly Hall from 11.30am tomorrow.
A range of comic book writers, illustrators and artists will be sharing their insights into the industry, including Iron Man writer Kieron Gillen and Doctor Who Magazine artist Dylan Teague.
The convention is the brainchild of the town’s KomiX store owner, Hayley Spencer, and was funded by public donations through an online appeal.
Convention committee member Matt Gatty said: “We are pretty much there now. The main difference this year is the size of it. We have got more exhibitors and more guests, so it’s around twice the size of last year.”
Tickets are still available from the KomiX store, in Church Street, or on the door on the day. For more show details, visit www.melkshamcomiccon.co.uk
