MALTA COMIC CON 2014
A lot of people have commented that the Malta Comic Convention 2013 was one of the best shows they have ever been to. If you were there, chances are we’re quoting you! And if you missed it you can be part of the awesomeness this time round. Following the fun filled success that was the Malta Comic Con 2013, Wicked Comics are proud to announce that the 6th edition of the annual Malta Comic Con will be held on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th November! The show will once again be held at St. James Cavalier in Valletta, the capital city of Malta. The venue was originally a bastion (part of the fortifications of the City) constructed by the Knights Hospitallers which was later converted to a wicked Art’s and Creativity Centre.
“Way back in 2009 when we gave Malta its first ever comic convention our goal was that in 5 years we establish the show as one of the biggest, awesome and genuinely anticipated festivals on the Island. The amazing response we received last year (were we almost doubled the attendees of the previous year, amongst which was the Honourable Dr. Joseph Muscat the Prime Minister of Malta) confirmed that we achieved this goal. Consequently, we are proud to say that the Malta Comic Convention is now a credible destination for both professionals working in the industry and for those who have the comic culture at heart. We would like to thank all the many people who have helped us make this possible and promise to deliver another explosive family oriented event this year” said Chris Le Galle co-founder of Wicked Comics.

Fans can look forward to feeling that amazing rush of meeting with their favourite creators who are always happy to chat, sign and sketch for their fans.

Testimonial from the much acclaimed comic writer and Malta Comic Con 2013 guest Ales Kot:
"I enjoyed my stay at the Malta Comic Con. It's a show that is finding itself -- and observing the process, and being able to help with it a little, has been an adventure in itself. The enthusiasm and focus of the organizers is inspiring. I believe in the Malta Comic Con, and I wish them my best." (Ales Kot, 2014).
